The Outdoor Cucurbits Grower Group are due to view the variety trials on 25 August at NIAB’s Cambridge site.
There are 19 courgette varieties, 14 pumpkin varieties and eight winter squash varieties. In addition the results of an electrolysed water trial will be available.
"Collaboration on new research required by this sector will ensure that our AHDB levy is spent on projects required by commercial growers," said group chairman and Barfoot Farms' grower Neil Cairns.
"Relevant research and knowledge exchange are vital to the future of this expanding field vegetable sector."
Following the overview of the trials, AHDB Horticulture grower levy payers will meet with AHDB to discuss results of current cucurbit research and plan for new R&D.
"Cucurbits are not grown by a large number of commercial growers so all involved are encouraged to attend this open day and help shape research to meet their needs."
