Parthencarpic cucumber for protected cropping. Forms long smooth fruits of a mid to deep green colour. The variety bred in north Germany is susceptible to tip burn in hot situations, hence the need to provide shade. Helena may form the odd male flower if under stress. The fruits are of an exceptional flavour.

This variety is a newly bred, organic variety. It was cultivated under organic conditions from the start, so that it is optimally adapted to organic cultivation. Varieties that carry the bioverita label are reproducible because they are open pollinated. They offer commercial gardeners an alternative to hybrid seed.
