Salad cucumber "Olimp" F1.
It retains its presentation for a long time! The pulp is sweet, juicy, without bitterness.
An early (45 -50 days) bee-pollinated hybrid, mainly of the female flowering type. The amicable return of the crop in the first month of fruiting is up to 7-13 kg / sq.m. The plant is long-leaved, with weak lateral branching. Fruits are cylindrical, dark green, slight tuberosity, 16-20 cm long, weighing 200-230 g. Does not turn yellow, good taste. Salad destination. Suitable for pickling, but no long-term storage.
Sowing to a depth of 1-2 cm. Seeds begin to germinate at + 13 + 15 ° С, the optimum temperature for development is + 25 + 30 ° С. Warm and moisture-loving, the location is sunny. The soils are light, fertile and rich.
Care: watering with warm water, combining them every 10 days with top dressing, weeding and loosening.
* To obtain high yields of cucumber, regular organo-mineral dressings are required. The first is done as soon as the plants take root: about 5-6 days after planting. Poultry droppings are diluted with water in a ratio of 1:15 and 5 g of magnesium sulfate are added to a bucket. The prepared solution is left in the greenhouse for three to five days. During this time, it will ferment a little, and a large amount of carbon dioxide, which is necessary for cucumber plants, will be released from it. In the future, they are fed every 15 days, alternating organomineral feedings with mineral ones. As a mineral fertilizer, it is best to use a nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium complex fertilizer with microelements (30 g per 10 l of water). Consumption rate of the solution: 1 liter per plant.
Cucumber plants are very responsive to air feeding with carbon dioxide: growth accelerates, yield increases and fruit taste improves. Gas is released from the soil during the decomposition of manure. In addition, a barrel of mullein or bird droppings diluted with water can be placed in the greenhouse. The mass is periodically stirred and renewed. It is necessary to harvest cucumbers regularly, avoiding the outgrowth of the fruits, rare collections delay the pouring of subsequent fruits.
