An experiment was conducted during kharif, 2016 at College of Horticulture, Venkataramannagudem, West Godavari District of Andhra Pradesh to study the influence of mulches on quality parameters in gherkin. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design (RBD) with different cultivars (Royal, Ajax and Chandini) and mulch applications (black plastic mulch, white plastic mulch, saw dust, coco peat and control). Among different mulch applications, white plastic mulch recorded significantly highest values for all quality parameters. Among the three cultivars, Chandini cultivar exhibited highest values.
