Cold tolerance of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) seedlings was investigated using wild-type plants and the phytochrome B-deficient mutant (lh-mutant). Plants were subjected for 6 days to intermittent short-term cooling (12°C for 2 h per day) and to continuous chilling under conditions of 16-h photoperiod (day/night = 16/8 h) and permanent illumination. “Dehardening” process was initiated by the transfer of plants to either light or dark conditions at 23°C. It was concluded that phytochrome B participates in the development of cold tolerance in cucumber plants under stress conditions, i.e., under short-term intermittent chilling at nights and during dehardening in continuous darkness.
