Rijk Zwaan’s Blueleaf® is a natural trait, bred into our range of cucumbers. Blueleaf® varieties have dark, blue-green foliage and contain more chlorophyll than other varieties. Dark leaves enable higher degrees of light absorption, which converts into more growth and fruiting – especially helpful in the cooler seasons. Read about the benefits of Rijk Zwaan’s Blueleaf® here.
