Florida Cucurbit Growers’ Conference to be held virtually Nov. 18

The Florida Cucurbit Growers’ Conference will be held virtually Nov. 18.

This is a virtual conference with plans for future in-person conferences. It will address the fundamental aspects of nutrient and pest management in cucurbit crops and provide information on specialty cucurbit varieties.

Cucurbits generally include squash, pumpkins, gourds, melons and cucumbers. The plants are typically annuals with vines, five-lobed leaves, spring-like tendrils, male and female flowers on a single plant, large and fleshy fruits with a hard skin, and many large, flat seeds.
