In 1984, our group started a project for collecting many vegetable crop species in Spain, which was partially sponsored by I.B.P.G.R./F.A.O. In addition to many other crops, 50 accessions of Cucumis sativus L. were collected. Samples of all of them have been sent to the National seed Storage Laboratory in fort Collins, U.S.A.

The first character in the identification label of the samples shows the area where the sample was collected: V=Valencia, AN=Andalucia, A=Aragon, C=Cataluna, CM=Castilla=La Mancha, E=Extremadura. Table 1 shows the items collected.
