The cucumber plant, Cucumis sativus, is an annual plant of the gourd family (Cucurbitaceae). The two variants of cucumbers most commonly cultivated are regular cucumbers and bur cucumbers (gherkins). Cultivation of regular cucumbers began around 1925 in Iceland and the delicious vegetables are now grown all year round.
Tomatoes are a staple of every family table and bring life to the dishes we love! Continued innovation in the agricultural growing cycle now enables Pure Arctic to offer steady cultivation all year round, with no gaps in the species natural growing cycle. Younger plants are dispersed amongst more mature plants, mimicking the natural process for smarter and more delicious results. Mature plants are removed once their fruit have ripened fully and the new plants have begun bearing fruit, continuing the natural growing cycle.
Our vegetables are grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil. Our experienced farmers exclusively use green energy for their greenhouses and water the crops with some of the purest water in the world.
