5 will take about growing cucumbers, which many summer residents believe in


Summer residents adhere to traditions in the cultivation of vegetable crops. They believe in signs that help them get a good harvest, including cucumbers.

Planting day selection

By observing the annual changes in nature, people were able to calculate the ideal time for planting - before the feast of the Holy Trinity. Otherwise, the cucumbers will not have time to go through each stage of development, and you will not see their fruits. Be sure to take note of the feast of St. Job. This is an auspicious day for sowing seeds. It is better to plant cucumbers on the day of St. Isidore: if the weather is sunny, then the harvest will be rich. The seedlings will take root most successfully if they are transferred to the soil on the day of Martha the borage. Keep an eye on the calendar and remember that the best time to land in open ground ends with the birthday of Falalei or Philip.

Hide from prying eyes

People used this trick several centuries ago: it was believed that if you cover young sprouts, for example, with straw, then the harvest will be abundant.

This tradition can also be explained from the point of view of logic. A layer of straw creates a greenhouse effect, thereby providing a favorable temperature for the growth of seedlings, while at the same time not depriving them of the ability to breathe.

Experienced summer residents say that this method helps to get rid of weeds for a while. However, you still have to remove the straw, otherwise mice may start in it.

Bury the first cucumber in the ground

As soon as the plants began to bear their first fruits, you need to bury one cucumber in the ground close to the garden bed. This ritual is considered a sacrifice to saints Philip and Falaley, patrons of the cucumber culture. The first cucumber is considered the most delicious, so summer residents, following this tradition, expected leniency from the saints and could ask for an increase in the harvest.

Hints from nature

Any plant subtly feels the influence of natural factors. That is why it is so important to carefully monitor the changes in the environment. Rowan and viburnum will be able to tell the exact time for planting - catch the moment when flowering brushes appear on their branches.As soon as you meet the first yellow dandelions, you can start working on the cucumber beds. Moreover, pay attention to the number of gadflies in your area or look at the cones of the tree. If there are a lot of those and others, then you don't have to worry about the harvest, it will certainly be rich. It is also necessary to take into account the lunar calendar, taking into account the phase of the moon, since it affects all living things. Never plant cucumbers on a full moon, or a few days before and after.

Harvest day

August 17 - the day of the holy martyr Evdokia or Avdotya the robin. It is on this, as usual, not a hot day that the most suitable time for picking cucumbers comes. According to the legend, if you harvest on August 17, then next year Avdotya will contribute to obtaining an even better result. By itself, a calm August day in the absence of the scorching sun and heavy rainfall is really ideal for harvesting fruits.


Ogurdynia: growing and care

Many gambling summer residents, having achieved excellent results in the cultivation of traditional crops, do not stop there and continue to experiment, "settling" the most incredible vegetables and fruits on their backyards. Among the beloved curiosities, special attention should be paid to the exotic fruit and vegetable culture - gourd, which gardeners appreciate for its high yield and unpretentious care. However, the most amazing quality of the culture, the birthplace of which is considered to be Central Asia, is that during the entire growth and development, the fruits change not only their shape and size, but also their taste and aroma properties. Unripe cucumber fruits have the taste and aroma of a traditional cucumber and are used in cooking accordingly - they are added by salads and side dishes, salted and pickled. As they ripen, the fruits are poured, the peel turns yellow, and the delicate pulp acquires a creamy hue and a pronounced melon taste. In addition, due to the high content of vitamins and valuable microelements, the fruit pulp of gourd has antioxidant and anti-sclerotic properties, improves bowel function, acts as a mild diuretic and choleretic agent. Depending on the variety and keeping conditions, the fruits can grow up to 60–80 cm in length and reach a weight of 5–8 kg. Even a gardener with little experience can grow such a fruit miracle on his personal plot, having familiarized himself with the main points of agricultural technology before the experiment.


FOR TASTE, FOR COLOR

In some private greenhouses, a Mexican cucumber, or chayote, resembling a pear with a thin pale green skin, has taken root perfectly. One fruit can weigh up to 1 kg, and sometimes up to 80 cucumbers grow on one lash. They can be fried, boiled, mashed and even baked, and chayote goes well with fruits and cinnamon.

Another type of cucumber - red, or tladiant, - is also found on the beds near Moscow, but has rather decorative functions, notes Oktyabrina Ganichkina. It is used to treat flu, headaches and hypertension, but Russians find the taste strange.

“I also had excellent white and purple carrots, known since the 20th century AD, and there was also yellow carrots for pilaf,” says Ganichkina. - But I believe that there is no better orange one, and if, in a longitudinal section, the color is uniform, that is, in the middle the root crop is not lighter, then the quality and benefit from it will be even greater.

Multi-colored carrots, as well as yellow, orange, pink tomatoes are also grown at the greenhouse plants of Kashira, Lukhovitsy, Likino-Dulyovo.


Features of planting a flower "Host"

First of all, let's talk about landing a host. There are two possible options - to plant in the spring or in the fall before frost. Planting hosts in open ground in spring is less preferable, but much more often used by summer residents.

Where and where is it better to plant the host in the garden

It is best to plant the funkia in a flower bed, where partial shade reigns, and there are no gusts of wind. It is important to take into account the varietal characteristics of a particular host. If your plant has bright foliage, then it can be placed in an area with diffused lighting. But the blue-leaved varieties require shade. In the sun, such hosts immediately lose their decorative effect.

Distance between hosts when landing

The distance between the flower and its neighbors depends on the varietal characteristics. Small varieties are planted half a meter apart. Large ones should be left at least 1 m between neighboring hosts.

ON A NOTE. You can increase the distance when planting if you plan to plant other flowers nearby.

What kind of soil does the hosta like when planting, what kind of land is needed

The good thing about the function is that it is completely calm about any type of soil. But, if you have such an opportunity, then plant on loams with neutral soil acidity. Planting in a flowerbed with sandy soils can be interesting. There, the growth of the hosta will become slower, but its decorative effect will increase.

Flower planting depth

The depth of the planting hole should be selected based on the size of the flower. Start with a hole 30 to 30. If the growth point is below ground level, then add soil, if much higher, then dig a hole a little more.

What to put in the hole when landing hosts

To plant the host in the spring to be effective, and the plants take root, you can add a little fertilizer to the hole. It is best to add a pinch of azofoska. Also, experienced summer residents are advised to put a handful of peat.

What flowers to plant hosta with, what can be planted between plants

Despite the fact that the plant can be used to "plug holes" in your country house, every gardener wonders how to plant hosts beautifully.

The hosta has a good neighborhood with ferns and conifers. Daylilies can also be placed nearby.

Features of care after planting

After planting the hosts in the spring, the plant needs to organize the right conditions for growth and development. They include regular and abundant watering, gentle and shallow loosening of the soil, fertilizing and mulching the flower bed.

How to plant the host in the spring from the store in a bag or containers

Since hosta is a popular plant, many large stores sell the plant packaged and ready to plant.

If you bought the host in a bag or container in a store, then planting it in the garden will be no different from the standard procedure. Except for one nuance. You need to be very careful not to damage the roots, remove the plant from the container.

To do this, moisten a clod of earth and wait a little. You can also cut the container neatly from the side.


What folk signs do farmers, gardeners and summer residents believe? What days should you plant and sow, and when should you abandon these activities?

Any gardener is a little superstitious, so he honors folk signs and always carefully studies the lunar calendar. When will the gardener's hand stop? When is it strictly forbidden to do sowing?

It is very important to pay attention to the phase of the moon. It is better not to engage in planting work on full moon days and when the celestial body is declining. Also, gardeners really do not like men's days (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday). Better to wait until the weekend or set aside Wednesday or Friday for seeds. Peppers, tomatoes, and eggplants are especially capricious crops.

When you decide to do carrots, it is better to soak the seeds at dawn. But there should be no strangers when landing. It is also better to tinker with peas in the summer cottage in the early morning. And let it be Saturday at the end of April or at the very beginning of May, depending on whether spring has come early or it is a little late. Saturday is generally a very favorable day for planting. It is then that you need to plant sunflowers, cabbage, onions. But for potatoes, women's days (Wednesday and Saturday) are not suitable. If you plant the tubers at this time, the crop may deteriorate. On palm week, it is better to refuse planting. Beets will be especially sensitive to these days.

You should not only count the days, but also carefully look at other plants. As soon as the viburnum blooms, it is time to plant tomato (tomato) and cucumber seedlings in the ground, and sow squash and pumpkin. Also, the seeds of these crops are sown during the flowering of mountain ash. But when the willow tree is just beginning to bloom, then you can plant the garden with radishes, cabbage, radish, green salad. Is a violet in full bloom? It's time for parsley and carrots. Even the croaking of frogs sets farmers in the right mood. This means it's time to sow oats. But the bow must be planted before the amphibians give a voice.

It is clear that amateur summer residents do not strictly adhere to all these folk signs, but increasingly trust the weather and agricultural technologies, but you can take a note of something. Have a good harvest!

Cucumber: how to choose the right variety

In cucumber, there are significant varietal differences in the duration of fruiting. If you want to get a high yield in a short period, grow early ripening hybrids-sprinters (F1 Regina-Plus, F1 Cupid, F1 Bouquet, F1 Alphabet), which give most of the harvest in the first month of fruiting.

To exclude this, I recommend using the following type of plant formation: the lower 3-4 nodes should be blinded (remove the rudiments of lateral shoots and ovaries), and in the remaining nodes it is necessary to remove

I grew this variety of cucumber even indoors - at home on the windowsill.

The early ripening variety was not named by chance - from germination to harvest of cucumbers, an average of one and a half months pass. Suitable for growing outdoors.

Winter and summer varieties

In general, to say the word "best" in relation to varieties of cucumbers is a dangerous thing - many summer residents grow some kind of favorite variety for one purpose, and do not chase new products, and so, for example, my neighbor on the site has been growing the variety "Zhuravlik" for many years , every year convinces me of its advantages and benefits, as it considers this cucumber "universal".

Cucumber varieties are distinguished by purpose. There are salad, canning, pickling and universal cucumbers. Salting qualities depend on the density of the skin and the content of pectin substances and sugars.

Today the seed market offers us such a variety of varieties and hybrids of cucumber that even an experienced gardener can get confused. How to navigate this abundance and choose the most suitable variety for yourself?

In order to collect a large number of zelents in late summer and early autumn, cold-resistant cucumbers with a long fruiting period are planted (F1 Virenta, F1 Saltan, F1 Anyuta, F1 Farmer, F1 Lord, F1 Boy with a finger, F1 Maryina Roscha).

Perhaps the most productive cucumbers are hybrids.

The task of this short article is not to try to convince you to change the old varieties of cucumbers, but to tell you about the newest and most productive varieties, so that if something happens, help you with the choice of seeds for the next season, especially below will be described not only the newest but also the old ones, but well-proven varieties and hybrids.

Black-thorn varieties are traditionally considered salting. But the salting qualities do not depend on the color of the pubescence, but on the density of the skin and the content of pectin substances and sugars in the fruits. Many modern varieties and hybrids have high salting qualities F1 True friends, F1 Saltan, F1 Anyuta, F1 Farmer, F1 Lord, F1 Chistye prudy, F1 Green Wave, F1 First class, F1 Acorn, F1 Dragonfly, F1 Ant, F1 Grasshopper, F1 Matryoshka, F1 Trump card, F1 Alphabet, F1 Bouquet, etc.

Detailed description of varieties in articles:

In terms of ripening, cucumbers are divided into three groups: early ripening - the period from germination to the beginning of fruiting is less than 45 days, mid-ripening - from 45 to 50 days, late-ripening - more than 50 days. Plants begin to bear fruit at the time indicated on the seed bag if they were in favorable conditions. Any cucumbers, even the most cold-resistant, at low temperatures are significantly delayed in development, which delays the onset of fruiting. Therefore, you should not rush to sowing or planting seedlings, carry them out at the optimal time (for central Russia, in unheated greenhouses - from May 15-20, in open ground - from June 1-5).

After you have removed the entire crop from the main stem, you should thoroughly feed the plants so that they are re-overgrown with side shoots. And this is precisely the trick of this method of formation. Lateral shoots, regrowing again, will mainly be represented by bouquet branches, which do not require additional pinching. And on these side shoots you will receive a second wave of fruiting, which will be no less than the first in volume.

Cold-resistant varieties

Recommended for growing under films

Zelenets of universal use, fruit weight 90 g. The thorns are small, the shape is beautiful, corresponds to the name. I liked the taste and appearance, the yield is average.

As all gardeners and gardeners know, varieties of cucumbers are available for pickling and pickling (for rolling and canning), salad dressing (for salads and fresh consumption), and universal ones - that is, suitable for both pickling and pickling and making salads. The latter, despite their versatility, are not often fruitful.

Branching of lateral shoots can be many, but they are short, with shortened internodes.With this trait, a group of unique hybrids has been created (F1 Ant, F1 Grasshopper, F1 Kozyrnaya Karta, F1 Mazai, etc.), combining limited growth of shoots with a rather long fruiting period. In other hybrids (F1 Cheetah), the number of lateral shoots on the plant may be less, although they grow well and grow longer. Such plants are much easier to form. Hybrids with limited branching are equally successfully cultivated both in protected and in open ground.

Not all cucumbers, by their biological characteristics, can tolerate the Spartan conditions of the garden. In open beds, cold-resistant varieties and hybrids are grown, adapted to the drying effect of wind and low air humidity. In addition, green plants should not lose marketability in the event of pollination.

Spring-summer varieties of cucumber. Parthenocarpic tuberous and smooth-fruited hybrids

Cucumber varieties are distinguished by purpose. There are salad, canning, pickling and universal cucumbers. Salting qualities depend on the density of the skin and the content of pectin substances and sugars.

The homeland of the cucumber is Central Asia. How the cucumber got to Russia is still not known, but we loved it very much and became an excellent snack.

Salted and salad varieties

Very good for pickling. Indeterminate - the growth of lashes is unlimited, without self-regulation, for example, as in the Zozuli variety. The shape of the fruit is fusiform, reaching a length of 14-15 centimeters. It is very productive in comparison with many varieties for seaming and salting.

Hybrids of a new line of shade-tolerant parthenocarpic cucumbers. An important feature of the variety is that it can be grown and harvested in the shade and at relatively low temperatures.

Salting and canning

Salad cucumbers have medium-sized smooth or lumpy fruits. Zelentsy has no bitterness, they have a crispy sweetish pulp and are eaten fresh (F1 Zozulya, F1 Bazar, F1 Bukhara, F1 Tamerlane, F1 Kochubey, F1 Marta, F1 Makar, etc.).

Black-thorn varieties are traditionally considered salting. But the salting qualities do not depend on the color of the pubescence, but on the density of the skin and the content of pectin substances and sugars in the fruits. Many modern varieties and hybrids have high salting qualities F1 True friends, F1 Saltan, F1 Anyuta, F1 Farmer, F1 Lord, F1 Chistye prudy, F1 Green Wave, F1 First class, F1 Acorn, F1 Dragonfly, F1 Ant, F1 Grasshopper, F1 Matryoshka, F1 Trump card, F1 Alphabet, F1 Bouquet, etc.

... One plant of these varieties is capable of producing up to 15 kilograms. Moreover, the cucumbers in the axils are formed not one by one, but several pieces. After you pick the cucumbers, new ovaries will begin to form in the axils. Pasadena and Pasamonte hybrids are self-pollinating, so they can be grown both outdoors and protected. You can use them not only fresh, they are suitable for canning and salting.

Recently, salad cucumbers have gone out of fashion, now gherkins are increasingly grown. And, in fact, the freshest, aromatic and truly fragrant cucumbers are salad cucumbers. Cucumber will be truly fresh throughout the summer.

The Emelya variety is resistant to the most common diseases in common areas: olive spot, cucumber mosaic, but unfortunately not resistant to powdery mildew and root rot.

Specially designed for growing in regions where there is a high risk of adverse weather conditions.

The "Ruffle F1" hybrid is one of the earliest ripening (even in comparison with the above-mentioned Graceful) - Ruffle 40 days, Zadavaka a little longer - 43-44 days.Salad cucumber varieties are usually covered in white thorns. Salad cucumbers are not suitable for salting - they become soft, tasteless, like grass. But you can't replace them in a salad, they crunch very tasty, and, as a rule, the yield of salad varieties of cucumbers is higher than that of their counterparts for pickling and canning.

Perfect for making summer soup. You will find the recipe on the seed bag.

The lower side shoots are few in number, and the flowering is female, the bush itself is of medium height. Tied in bundles of 3 to 5 fruits. The cucumber is also cylindrical, with large characteristic tubercles, reaching 8-9 centimeters in length with good care. The variety is resistant to powdery mildew, both real and false.

Another plus -

After the first - the main fruiting wave, the second wave comes - from bouquet branches. Hybrids with very low branching are ideal for those situations where you need to get the maximum yield in a short time - for example, on a short summer vacation. An increased early harvest is also achieved here due to a denser planting: instead of 2.5-3 plants / m2 to 5-6 plants / m2. In hybrids of this group, the main lash is long, which provides a much higher yield compared to bush forms.

F1 Dragonfly

Cucumbers vary considerably in shade tolerance. In summer, you should grow cucumbers of the summer-spring ecotype, which includes most varieties for amateur gardeners. Winter cucumbers, despite their shade tolerance, are not advisable to plant in summer: they are late in terms of ripening, and are more likely to be affected by summer diseases (primarily downy mildew). All hybrids with a bundle arrangement of ovaries in the nodes are referred to as photophilous. In partial shade conditions, it is better to plant shade-tolerant hybrids (F1 Arina, F1 Moscow evenings, F1 Danila, F1 Mastak, F1 Secret of the firm).

Good branching is understood as the growth of lateral shoots from almost every node of the main stem. The lateral shoots are long, requiring pinching in greenhouses.

Winter cucumbers are bee-pollinated and parthenocarpic, lumpy and smooth-fruited. The average length of green leaves is 15-25 cm, there are also long-fruited forms (with smooth green leaves) - up to 30-35 cm long.

Unlike other salad cucumbers, cucumber

In the greenhouse, the yields of cucumbers are in most cases higher, but cucumbers grown in the open field are always tastier. This is noticeable even when growing the same variety.

F1 Gladiator

Many modern hybrids with good branching are characterized by a valuable trait - SELF-REGULATION OF BRANCHING, when a high crop load on the main stem does not allow lateral shoots to form quickly (F1 Maryina Roscha, F1 Chistye Prudy, F1 Matryoshka, F1 Junior Lieutenant, F1 Buyan, F1 Petrel, F1 Boy with a finger, F1 Hit of the season, F1 Green wave, F1 Dragonfly, etc.).

All winter hybrids are late-ripening, characterized by strong vegetative growth, large leaves. The most popular are lumpy white-spiked hybrids with fruits of a beautiful bright green color, 15-22 cm long, large lumpy, with excellent taste, for salad purposes. Such cucumbers can be seen on store shelves in winter. All bee-pollinated hybrids must be planted with 10-15% pollinator hybrids (F1 Gladiator, F1 Hercules, F1 Ermine).

This hybrid variety is good because it requires a minimum of maintenance. It grows equally well on my site both in open ground and in a film greenhouse, absolutely not needing a trellis. The best variety for real barrel pickling. Well tolerates sudden cold and rainy weather.

To provide yourself and your family with a harvest of cucumbers, use a mixed method - grow salad dressings in seedlings in a greenhouse or greenhouse, and varieties intended for pickling and rolling under a film, which can always be removed in the heat. With this "combined approach" you will not be left without a harvest of cucumbers.
Northern regions

Later, when most of the crop has been harvested from the main stem, the side shoots will begin to grow faster. Thus, in the presence of self-regulation of branching, much less time is spent on pinching the lateral shoots. This is especially important if your stay in the garden is limited to weekends - such plants do not have time to overgrow too much during the working week.

All major cucumber hybrids cultivated by gardeners and farmers in the summer are included in the spring-summer cucumber group. Such hybrids are the fastest ripening, possessing complex disease resistance. Among them there are both parthenocarpic and bee-pollinated forms, the length of the greenery varies from 6-10 cm (gherkins) to 20 cm. This also includes beam hybrids.

Contains a large amount of iodine. So it is not only tasty, but also healthy.

Belongs to the group of cucumbers intended for cultivation in open ground and film tunnels without a tie to a trellis and without plant formation. The peculiarity of such cucumbers is their suitability for barrel salting (by the way, it is considered the most delicious). This group has minimal maintenance requirements and is highly resistant to adverse weather conditions or just a sharp drop in temperature.

Long-term fruiting - until the onset of stable frosts. Both are resistant to temperature fluctuations, root keels, downy mildew.

If you have planted cucumbers not of breeding varieties, but so to say "folk" for example Nezhensky or Muromsky, then be prepared for the fact that their yield, as well as early ripening and mass of fruits, will be different all the time.

With a short summer, late spring and early frosts, when grown in open ground and unheated greenhouses, it is advisable to select early maturing hybrids with moderate or weak branching. Hybrids with strong branching simply do not have time to give up their entire crop.

Bunch hybrids can be parthenocarpic (F1 Maryina Roshcha, F1 Matryoshka, F1 Grasshopper, F1 Dragonfly, F1 Green Wave, F1 Kozyrnaya Karta, F1 Brawler, F1 Hit of the season, F1 Balalaika, etc.) and bee-pollinated (F1 True friends, F1 Teremok , F1 Captain, F1 Acorn, F1 Compass, F1 Alphabet, etc.).

Some beam gherkins also have shade tolerance (F1 Maryina Roshcha, F1 Chistye Prudy, F1 Hit of the season, F1 Green wave).

Winter cucumbers are bee-pollinated and parthenocarpic, lumpy and smooth-fruited.The average length of greenery is 15-25 cm, there are also long-fruited forms (with smooth greenery) - up to 30-35 cm long. All winter hybrids are late-ripening, characterized by strong vegetative growth, large leaves. The most popular are lumpy white-spiked hybrids with fruits of a beautiful bright green color, 15-22 cm long, large lumpy, with excellent taste, for salad purposes. Such cucumbers can be seen on store shelves in winter. All bee-pollinated hybrids must be planted with 10-15% pollinator hybrids (F1 Gladiator, F1 Hercules, F1 Ermine).

Good branching is a guarantee of long-term active fruiting (the more the cucumber branches, the longer the potential yield period). Good branching is important for cucumbers grown in the open field and under temporary film shelters, as well as in greenhouses for long-term harvests. Cucumbers with good branching deserve special attention in the southern regions of the country, since under overheating conditions weakly branching cucumbers quickly finish fruiting.

Parthenocarpic and bee-pollinated varieties

Novgorod variety of medium ripening. The crop can be obtained 43-46 days after planting. It can yield crops up to the first frost.

Well suited for rolling and any canning and for eating "just like that" .. I grew them in the open field through seedlings, on a warm garden bed. The taste and yield are excellent, I did not notice much difference between these two hybrids.

Note: Cucumbers in December on the windowsill

All major cucumber hybrids cultivated by gardeners and farmers in the summer are included in Hybrids with moderate or limited branching may have many lateral shoots, but they are short, with shortened internodes. With this trait, a group of unique hybrids has been created (F1 Ant, F1 Grasshopper, F1 Kozyrnaya Karta, F1 Mazai, etc.), combining limited growth of shoots with a rather long fruiting period. In other hybrids (F1 Cheetah), the number of lateral shoots on the plant may be less, although they grow well and grow longer. Such plants are much easier to form. Hybrids with limited branching are equally successfully cultivated both in protected and in open ground.
Parthenocarpic forms are best suited for protected ground (greenhouses), since crop formation does not depend on pollinating insects, which pollinate plants in greenhouses worse. But parthenocarp (fruit formation without pollination) is a sign that depends on the growing conditions; any stresses in plants (temperature drops, drought, excessive moisture) reduce its manifestation. Natasha
​9.​ Stems are superficially creeping, branched, short in length. The cucumbers themselves are in the shape of a cylinder, with a small size (on average 9 centimeters). In diameter, they rarely exceed 3 centimeters, more often 2.6-2.7 centimeters. Very pleasant and strong smell, the peel is dense, there are few tubercles, with white stripes. Not a bitter grade.
Zozulya F1 (F1) You can sow a cucumber on the windowsill already in December. Choose parthenocarpic varieties and east and south windows. Add 30% humus to black soil. You can add peat, fresh manure 10-15% (any kind). First, sow the seeds in pots with a volume of 0.5 liters, and transplant the overgrown seedlings in the phase of the 1st true leaf into a container at the rate of 5-7 liters per plant, deepening the seedling to the cotyledon leaves.
Middle zone of Russia Good branching
F1 Chistye Prudy A group of spring-summer cucumber
The group of cucumber with weak branching includes early ripening hybrids-sprinters, which give most of the harvest in the 1st month of fruiting: F1 Alphabet, F1 Cupid, F1 Regina-plus, F1 Bouquet, F1 Balalaika, etc. e. are very short (up to 10-15 cm) "bouquet twigs" - with closely spaced internodes, often without leaves, they themselves stop growing. Such bouquet twigs with pouring greens look like bunches of fruits. Both parthenocarpic and partially parthenocarpic and bee-pollinated hybrids can be successfully cultivated under temporary film shelters and in open ground. Among bee-pollinated cucumbers, the most popular varieties with the female type of flowering (F1 Farmer, F1 Lord, F1 True friends, F1 Alphabet, F1 Acorn, F1 Captain, F1 Compass, F1 Teremok, etc.), they are more productive.
Contains 99% water. This cucumber is not expensive enough, but it can be used in canning and salting, and fresh can also be consumed. Cucumber Natasha belongs to early ripe cucumbers. Zozulya F1
I liked it both in taste, in appearance and in the modest amount of care that is required when growing this variety. Quite an old variety, zoned back in the distant "Soviet" 77th year in the Timiryazevsky academy.
Since daylight hours increase, and parthenocarpics are shade-tolerant, supplementary lighting can be dispensed with. On the 30-40th day, the plants will bloom, and in another 10-12 days they will give the first greens. You can choose smooth or lumpy varieties, long-fruited or gherkin type. For open ground and film, cucumbers are suitable, both with limited, and with medium and good branching. Well-branched hybrids will yield higher yields in late summer and early fall. In heated greenhouses, where the fruiting period lasts longer, preference is given to well-branched hybrids.

Understand the regrowth of lateral shoots from almost every node of the main stem, lateral shoots are long, requiring pinching in greenhouses. Many modern hybrids with good branching are characterized by a valuable trait - SELF-REGULATION OF BRANCHING, when a high crop load on the main stem does not allow lateral shoots to form quickly (F1 Maryina Roshcha, F1 Chistye Prudy, F1 Matryoshka, F1 Junior Lieutenant, F1 Buyan, F1 Petrel, F1 Boy with a finger, F1 Hit of the season, F1 Green wave, F1 Dragonfly, etc.). Later, when most of the crop has been harvested from the main stem, the side shoots will begin to grow faster. Thus, in the presence of self-regulation of branching, much less time is spent on pinching the lateral shoots. This is especially important if your stay in the garden is limited to weekends - such plants do not have time to overgrow too much during the working week.
In cucumber, there are significant varietal differences in the duration of fruiting. If you want to get a high yield in a short period, grow early maturing sprinter hybrids (F1 Regina-Plus, F1 Cupid, F1 Bouquet, F1 Alphabet), which give most of the harvest in the first month of fruiting.

... Such hybrids are the fastest ripening, possessing complex disease resistance. Among them there are both parthenocarpic and bee-pollinated forms, the length of the greenery varies from 6-10 cm (gherkins) to 20 cm. This also includes beam hybrids.

After the first - the main fruiting wave, the second wave comes - from bouquet branches. Hybrids with very low branching are ideal for those situations where you need to get the maximum yield in a short time - for example, on a short summer vacation. An increased early harvest is also achieved here due to a denser planting: instead of 2.5-3 plants / m2 to 5-6 plants / m2. In hybrids of this group, the main lash is long, which provides a much higher yield compared to bush forms.But for high-quality pollination, it is necessary to sow varieties that form a large number of male flowers (barren flowers). Breeding firms put colored pollinator seeds in the bags of the main bee-pollinated hybrids. These bags have a special symbol - a yellow seed in a pink square and the text "colored seeds - pollinator".
Not all cucumber varieties are suitable for cold curing. So that the cucumbers are not empty, it is better to take a cucumber for salting.

To prolong fruiting, you can plant bunch varieties that give a crop of cucumbers "wave" and varieties with extended ripening periods, remontant, which are resistant to diseases and can yield even in cold weather. By the way, autumn cucumbers are the most delicious when "cold salted"

Cucumber seed varieties.

F1 Junior Lieutenant F1 CupidParthenocarpic forms are best suited for protected ground (greenhouses), since crop formation does not depend on pollinating insects, which pollinate plants in greenhouses worse. But parthenocarp (fruit formation without pollination) is a sign that depends on the growing conditions; any stresses in plants (temperature drops, drought, excessive moisture) reduce its manifestation.
FOR NORTHERN REGIONS with short summers, late spring and early frosts, when growing in open ground and unheated greenhouses, it is advisable to select early maturing hybrids with moderate or weak branching. Hybrids with strong branching simply do not have time to give up their entire crop.Ajax
A variety of cucumbers with an average ripening period, on average 54-55 days from planting in the ground or greenhouse with seedlings. Also a parthenocarpic variety of cucumbers. I successfully grow in a film greenhouse in the first half of the season, and in the open field after.Due to the “age” of the variety, Zozulya is very unstable to either false or true powdery mildew, but this is compensated by the fact that under conditions of cultivation in ordinary unheated greenhouses in the country, it gives high yields even before the spread of the disease through the plant.

Well-branched hybrids will yield higher yields in late summer and early fall. In heated greenhouses, where the fruiting period lasts longer, preference is given to well-branched hybrids.
Not all cucumbers, by their biological characteristics, can tolerate the Spartan conditions of the garden. In open beds, cold-resistant varieties and hybrids are grown, adapted to the drying effect of wind and low air humidity. In addition, green plants should not lose marketability in the event of pollination. This variety is quite drought tolerant, it can be grown with insufficient watering.There are a lot of lateral shoots, ovaries in the axils, as a rule, only 2, cucumbers are small, rarely 8 centimeters in length. Cucumbers are white, and you need to harvest when they begin to change from white to salad. In principle, we eat more fresh, but they are also suitable for rolling and canning, if you and your family will not be embarrassed by the unusual color of the cucumber.
Parthenocarpic varietyDuring the fruiting period, cucumbers are fed once a week with an infusion of fresh mullein, bird droppings or fermented grass, it can be alternated with fertilizing with mineral fertilizers. Only warm water is suitable for irrigation (20-25 ° C). Pickles and gherkins are harvested every day (otherwise they thicken, become like small barrels), cucumbers for pickling and fresh consumption - in 1-3 days. Timely harvest stimulates the active growth of the remaining and the formation of a new ovary.
Cucumber planting care Good branching is a guarantee of long-term active fruiting (the more a cucumber branches, the longer the potential yield period). Good branching is important for cucumbers grown in the open field and under temporary film shelters, as well as in greenhouses for long-term harvests. Cucumbers with good branching deserve special attention inF1 Alphabet
F1 True friendsIt is better to plant several varieties on the site, different in purpose and growing time. This will increase the period of consumption of cucumbers and the chances of getting a good harvest in different weather conditions.

Sweet corn has a special root that goes a meter deep. This root is able to pull up the moisture needed by the cucumber. Maize and cucumbers are planted as follows: first, a furrow is made and maize is sown, cucumbers are planted at a distance of about 50 cm. Thus, the cucumbers will trudge along the corn, and the corn will draw moisture to the cucumbers.
