Ontario greenhouse cucumbers always in season

Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers has launched its annual winter cucumber program Always in Season on Feb. 17. This program signifies the ramp up of production for all varieties of Ontario greenhouse-grown seedless cucumbers and informs Ontario consumers of their availability during the cold winter months.

The growing demand for Ontario greenhouse seedless cucumbers is motivated by consumers' healthy eating choices. OGVG growers have increased production to ensure the supply is abundant for Ontario consumers and retailers.

“Consumers can once again find fresh, tasty Ontario greenhouse cucumbers in their local stores” OGVG General Manager Rick Seguin said in a press release. “There’s no need to wait”.

This program is supported by key Canadian retailers. This year’s campaign includes new recipe ideas, retailer flyer ads indicating product of Canada and a media campaign designed to raise awareness of availability of locally grown greenhouse seedless cucumbers.
