Abstract

The field experiment was conducted to know profitability of different cucumber variety at agriculture farm of Girija Prasad koirala college of Agriculture and Research centre (GPCAR) of Purbanchal University, Gothgaun from March to July 2020. The experiment was conducted in Randomized complete block design with Walk–in structure with three treatments (GS16, Bhaktapur Local and Cucumber green long) and five replications. Each treatment consists of two plants in a replication. Sex ratio was seen on first thirty flowers after sowing of seed. All fruit harvested was considered for research purpose. The research revealed that fruit yield was poor in Bhaktapur local, satisfactory in GS16 and Cucumber green long. The fruit yield was higher in Cucumber green long followed by GS16. There was no satisfactory fruit yield in Bhaktapur local. Hence, it is concluded that thermo sensitive variety of cucumber Bhaktapur Local is not profitable to grow in summer season in plain area of eastern Nepal. Growing of cucumber green long for pickling quality is beneficial although slicing quality is better seen in GS16. The research hints that cucumber green long is a profitable agriculture commodity for the research area.
