How to get a rich harvest of delicious cucumbers


Cucumber secrets

Cucumbers are always great if you provide them with proper care. After all, they, like any culture, have their own requirements for agricultural technology, their own secrets. Some of them will be discussed.

A hardened young plant, when it grows, needs a pinch of the main stem over 4-5 leaves. Simply put, you need to cut off the tops of the plant, after which the side shoots will begin to grow vigorously, on which flowers with a female type of flowering abundantly develop. As practice has shown, the best results are shown by those plants that are tied up and grow up, for which stakes, nets, trellises are used.

Very often, cucumber plants that spread their whips on the ground are susceptible to disease powdery mildew... Its sign is gray oily spots on cucumber leaves. This disease causes the planting of cucumbers to wither in a short time. Therefore, at the initial stage of development of cucumber plants, do not be too lazy to sprinkle their leaves with whey. Repeat such preventive spraying every 7-10 days, then the foliage on the cucumber plants will remain healthy, and the greens will be poured to your delight.


Heavy watering and a warm shower also have a beneficial effect on cucumbers. But do not forget that cold water is contraindicated for these thermophilic plants.

Cucumbers grow wellif you feed them organic fertilizers (rotted manure, droppings). The best option is to infuse manure in a barrel or bucket at a concentration of 1 kg of manure per 3 liters of water. After a week, add 0.5 liters of this infusion to a bucket of water and feed the plants. If you get on the leaves with this solution, wash it off with water, otherwise they may get burned.

The choice of seeds for sowing must also be approached responsibly. If you grow cucumbers in a greenhouse, and bees do not fly there, then you need to plant parthenacarpic hybrids (self-pollinating). For example, a representative of this class called Eunicius F1 has an excellent harvest. This is an early ripening variety, you will receive the first fruits 40 days after germination. In each node it has 5-6 fruits 8-11 cm long. The variety is striking with the intensity of fruiting, cucumbers are good for canning.

For open ground, it is better to choose bee-pollinated hybrids, which in their taste are superior to self-pollinated hybrids. These are hybrids - Washington F1 and Sarvil F1. The first variety has practically only female flowers; it forms a huge number of beautiful and tasty gherkins. Cucumbers without voids and slowly outgrow. They are good for fresh consumption and canning.


The Sarvil variety also grows and bears fruit abundantly. Cucumbers taste excellent, they look very nice in a jar. This variety is unpretentious, it easily adapts to any weather conditions. Over-yielding.

But if you are growing bee-pollinated hybrids, do not forget to plant pollinating varieties with male flowers nearby. Normal early varieties are best suited for this. These include the Russian varieties Chudo-Yudo, Feodul, Nil. On such plants, the first wave of flowering occurs only on male flowers, and then, after pinching the main stem, the female half also blooms.

I will send a detailed catalog to everyone who wants to grow interesting varieties of cucumbers and other plants, in which, in addition to cucumbers, there is a large selection of tomatoes, amateur selection peppers, remontant raspberries and strawberries. Please enclose a self-addressed envelope to reply. Write to: Kostenko Igor Viktorovich - 356240, Stavropol Territory, Mikhailovsk, st. Konstantinov, 4/2.

I am a beginner gardener and this was my first experience in growing cucumbers.

I decided to order the seeds from the Sady Rossii NPO. According to the description on the site, I chose the cucumbers Claudine F1 and Herman F1. In this review I will only talk about Claudine F1.

So, I ordered the seeds, they came by mail. The package contains 6 pieces, the cost is about 60 rubles.

When the time came, and it was mid-June, I decided to sow my seeds for seedlings.

Soaked all 6 pieces in a wet disc and kept it wet until the "tails" appeared. All the seeds hatched and I placed them in the ground.

After a couple of days, sprouts appeared on the surface. Since my lighting is poor, all my seedlings are very elongated, they did not look beautiful.

A warm bed was prepared in advance on the site, where I planted my cucumbers.

On one side of the bed, 6 Claudine F1 seedlings were planted, on the other the same number of Hermann F1. I covered the planted plants with spunbond and did not remove it until the heat was established.

Despite the fact that my seedlings were poor (I think so), the plants took root well and started growing.

Having studied all the intricacies of the cultivation of cucumbers, I cut off the lower leaves, then left one cucumber above, one whip above and 2 cucumbers, etc.

First, one cucumber was removed, after a couple of days 3, then 5, and after a couple of days I collected a whole package of them. And this is not the limit. And yes, I did not fertilize them with anything, I only mulched and fed them with herbal infusion!

And now my family is trying the first fruits grown by their own hands. Cucumbers are beautiful, perfectly shaped, the same, juicy, sweet and crunchy in taste.

In the photo, Claudine's cucumbers (smooth and even) together with Herman (with pimples).

I believe that already at this stage the cost of seeds paid off for me, because there is no way to buy such tasty and healthy cucumbers in the store, and the cost of more or less normal per kg is more than 80 rubles. Like this.

Try, plant and you will succeed too)


Superbeam hybrids with weak branching

Another type of superbeam hybrids. There are a lot of ovaries in a bunch - there are up to 10-12 ovaries in one knot! An ideal option for those who are comfortable with getting a bountiful harvest in a short time: the massive yield of fruits lasts 30-40 days. The secret of the record speed is simple: at a time when the central lash gives up the bulk of the crop, lateral shoots grow quickly - they are short, therefore, they begin to bear fruit as soon as possible. It should also be added that such hybrids almost do not require formation.

Cucumbers RMT is a series of fruits of early ripening of the "Ural summer resident" presented on the Russian market by the company Mars (Miass, Chelyabinsk region). The hybrid is ideal for home planting.

The variety does not require painstaking work for its pollination (parthenocarpic), with bundle-shaped ovary formations. It is recommended to grow in the first turn. From germination to collecting the first green leaves, it takes from 36 to 44 days.

Plants with weak foliage, with medium branching, medium-sized, with sparse foliage. In the leaf sinus, 2 to 5 ovaries can be observed. At the same time, up to 20 - 30 zelents can be poured on one plant. Timely harvest will allow other fruits to grow, which directly affects the amount of harvest.

The plant is formed, like other varieties of the Uralsky Dachnik series (Beam splendor, Siberian garland, Taganay, Perfection itself, Envy for everyone, MELS) into one stem.

Fruits with small tubercles, cylindrical in shape. The length of the greenery reaches 11 - 13 cm, weight - 80 - 100 grams. Skin with short whitish stripes, rich green hue. Pubescence is of medium density. Spikes are white. The pulp is aromatic, without bitterness - crispy.

Cucumbers for universal use. The palatability of fresh and canned fruits is excellent.

If someone talks about this variety, it immediately comes to mind that there are a lot of zelents on the plant, at the beginning of fruiting, a very high yield, resistance to drought and heat. Cucumbers store their commercial qualities for 10 days from the date of collection, without creating special storage conditions. Fruiting can last until the very frost.

The main features of the RMT F1 cucumber variety are early maturity, high yield, amicable fruiting, marketability and excellent fruit taste.

We are glad to present to you superbundle cucumber hybrids. These are unique, collectible hybrids with incredible yields, which we were able to achieve due to the bunch effect. These hybrids form real bouquets of cucumbers in the nodes, thanks to the abundance of medium-sized greens, their number on each plant can reach 400 pieces, due to this, one plant gives the same yield as 10 plants of a regular hybrid, while you save a lot of space and effort. Also, the entire collection is maximally resistant to the main diseases of the cucumber. The only negative, if you can call it that, is the need to collect greens often (daily or every 1-2 days), preventing them from overgrowing. Unharvested cucumbers restrain the filling of new ovaries. The price of such hybrids is certainly high, but it always justifies itself.

How do I make a productive bed-box

I have been preparing a garden for cucumbers since autumn. I have it in a wooden box measuring 3.5 m by 80 cm. At the end of August I bring in wood ash (a liter can) and sow mustard. Already in mid-September, I close up green manure and bring in 3 buckets of humus based on manure. In October, I make a ditch in the center and put birch and comfrey leaves in it, water it with Fitosporin solution and fill it with humus. I cover the garden with dense spunbond. Two weeks before planting cucumber seedlings, I water the garden bed with warm water and cover it again with a film so that the earth warms up as much as possible.

On the eve of planting, I dig a 60 cm wide trench in the center of the garden bed with a full bayonet of a shovel, folding the earth into a wheelbarrow. At the bottom of the trench I pour humus with a layer of 5-7 cm and pour it with warm water with the addition of Extrasol or Baikal EM-1 (according to the instructions). Cover for the night. I water the soil abundantly before planting.
