New best cucumber varieties

When choosing varieties of cucumbers for growing in greenhouses and greenhouses, you need to pay attention to several parameters. All of them have an impact on the final result - the harvest. Below we will consider the selection features, and also give the best varieties of cucumbers for greenhouses for 2017-2018 according to gardeners' reviews.

Indoors, 3 groups of modern varieties can develop normally:

  1. Hybrids with 100% parthenocarp (fully self-pollinated) are the most successful option.
  2. Hybrids of the female type of flowering (with a predominance of female flowers) - more suitable for half-open greenhouses, it is advisable to plant several bushes with male flowers (for better pollination) to them.
  3. Chinese variety - hybrid and varietal (non-hybrid) forms. They tolerate temperature contrasts very well. Appointment - mainly salad.

Is it possible to plant different varieties of cucumbers in one greenhouse? Experienced vegetable growers answer this question in the affirmative. It is not recommended to give preference to only one variety; for reliability, it is better to plant at least 2-3, from different companies.

Benefits of hybrid greenhouse cucumbers

Selection factors for specific varieties:

  • We purchase seeds only from the most reliable companies.
  • Almost all modern hybrids are not bitter, and such a feature is not always mentioned on labels now, this is implied by itself. Bitterness can appear in old varieties or in vegetables from unscrupulous producers.
  • Pay attention to the timing of the return of the crop: fast and friendly or extended.
  • We calculate in advance the required amount of salad and gherkins.
  • The degree of bumpiness ("shirt") is a matter of personal taste. Breeders offer many different options.
  • If it is not possible to pay much attention to planting, cucumbers with restrained lateral branching that do not require shaping will help out (these also exist now).
  • There are special hybrids for shaded areas.
  • Preference should be given to forms with maximum resistance to various infections.

It should be remembered that modern breeding has achieved tremendous success in the field of disease resistance of cucumbers, but they are still susceptible to attacks by insect pests (greenhouse whitefly, spider mites, melon aphids, etc.).


"Parisian gherkin"

The most popular variety is Parisian Gherkin. It is pollinated by bees. Its fruits ripen after 40 days, and the weight is from 55 to 80 g. Growing gherkins does not require special care, basically, it consists in weeding from weeds, loosening the soil and proper watering.

Watering is necessary with warm, stagnant water after 2-3 hours of the day, when the activity of the sun decreases. Moderate watering is needed for the plant during the appearance of the leaves. When the plant begins to bloom, watering is reduced and then increased again during the fruit formation stage.


The best varieties for open ground

Seeds of bunch cucumbers are more expensive than seeds of classical types. But, 5 seeds of a standard package will make 5 bushes, which will provide a harvest of fruits of about 45-50 kg during the growing season.

All varieties grow well in open beds, without greenhouses.


The best varieties of cucumbers with a bundle ovary: features of varieties and cultivation

Wanting to get the harvest as soon as possible, gardeners select unique fast-growing varieties from the very beginning. A popular variety of fast-growing vegetables is bunch cucumbers. Their main feature is the type of fruiting. During the formation of ovaries and leaves, they form single and paired female flowers. Because of such an abundance, the harvest is always rich, and care is required to be small, but careful.

What are the features

Tufted cucumbers are a variety of varieties. Each one is unique and requires special care. This is a set of varieties that, during the ripening period, form internodes with ovaries in large quantities - up to 15 pieces. Moreover, when there are more than 10 ovaries, such varieties are called superbundled cucumbers. For comparison, other cucumbers in the greenhouse and in the open field form up to three ovaries. Sometimes you can see another name - bouquet-type cucumbers, because the inflorescences look like small bouquets.

Clusters for open field and greenhouses grow quickly. Instead of 60 days, bouquets ripen in a period of 40 days.

Cucumber varieties with a tuft ovary require little but well-organized care. Otherwise, their main feature is lost - the speed and amount of the harvest. The amount of the final yield of the bunch type is twice that of other varieties.

Varieties of bunch cucumbers for open ground appear almost simultaneously - this is unusual and interesting. Bundling cucumbers is a quick process.

Depending on climatic conditions, the formation of ovaries begins already on the third day after germination, and small gherkins appear earlier than two months later.

Incomparable advantages of the view:

  1. Lack of overgrowths. Vegetables grow up to 10-15 cm, large sizes are inconvenient to prepare.
  2. Taste qualities suitable for pickling, pickling and preparing salads.
  3. Resistant to many diseases that cucumbers are susceptible to.
  4. Resistance to changing environmental conditions.
  5. Yield stability. Ripening of a vegetable always takes about 5 days.

The disadvantages include frequent harvesting. Such a schedule is not always convenient for working summer residents.

  1. Preparing the beds and soil. For this, it is best to add compost - a natural organic fertilizer. It is easier to grow vegetables in greenhouses or outdoors on prepared soil. A super-bunched cucumber on prepared soil is able to yield a crop within a month and a half after germination.
  2. Regular feeding. Reviews for all varieties of bunches claim that with regular feeding once a week, more bunches appear. At the same time, it is important to choose the right food: natural and processed by the soil.
  3. Resistant to waterlogging. In an excessively rainy summer, cucumbers do not grow watery. The quality remains high.

Varieties

All varieties of beam and superbeam hybrids differ slightly in terms of cultivation and taste. Bunch cucumbers, seeds of their varieties are similar to each other, however, you need to choose the type whose characteristics are suitable for the growing conditions in a particular area. Only in this case will the variety meet all the expectations placed on it. All vegetables of long-term fruiting are subdivided into self-pollinated bunch and bee-pollinated. The description of the variety touches on this issue in detail.

Bee-pollinated species are unsuitable for greenhouses, therefore, it is better to organize the cultivation of bundled cucumbers of some types in the open field on the street.

The best self-pollinated species have been identified:

  1. Bunch splendor cucumbers - for the first time this self-pollinated species appeared in the Urals. Beam splendor - early maturing. The first crop can be harvested 35-37 after planting. Resistant to skirmishes of temperatures, excessive humidity, most cucumber pests. It produces equally good fruiting in the greenhouse and in open soils. Productivity is one of the largest among all varieties. About three hundred fruits are harvested from one bush per season. When planting, it is important to form the entire plant into one stem. In such a situation, all the bunches of the planting grow on one large and strong stem. During agricultural technology, such bunch varieties are planted side by side. Then it is easier to form cucumbers into one stem, extra branches are not formed, and extra energy is not wasted on their growth. The fruits are cylindrical in shape.The surface is uneven, with moderate tubercles and spines. The final color is light green with white veins.
  2. Cucumber Anyuta F1. Self-pollinated or parthenocarpic hybrid. Versatile - suitable for greenhouses and open ground. Planting dates in the greenhouse - from the beginning of May, in the open field - from the beginning of June. Fully ripens in 40 days, mid-season. The ovaries are formed into knots of 6 pieces. The fruits are elongated, bright green in color, with white thorns, tubercles and pubescence. Most often used for pickling and pickling. Resistant to dangerous diseases of cucumber hybrids - powdery mildew, powdery mosaic virus, downy mildew, olive spot.
  3. Cucumber Five Stars F1. After germination, the fruits are ready for consumption in a month and a half. Grows well under various shelters and in open soil.

Varieties of bunch (bouquet) cucumbers, growing in the open field

Bouquet cucumbers are a gift for modern summer residents.
Will you believe if they tell you that one plant of bouquet-type cucumbers will give you as many greens as ten bushes of old traditional ones? And this is true.

Such hybrids of cucumbers are called bunched or bouquet... However, you need to know some rules for their selection and care for them.

Pros of bunch cucumbers

- Significant saving of space in the beds, for a family of 3-4 people you can grow only a few plants, enough cucumbers for food and canning.
Proper care will allow you to remove up to 10 kg of tasty and non-bitter fruits from each bush.

- Resistance to diseases most common among pumpkin crops (which include cucumbers). You do not need time to treat diseases, you save money.

- Reliability in cultivation. Bouquet cucumbers do not reduce productivity due to changes in air temperature. They do not need to be sown or buy seedlings.

- Already in 38-40 days after germination, you can pick and eat greens, without spending money on store, which are always more expensive there than bananas.

How to choose

Among the bunch cucumbers there are no varieties, only hybrids, so seeds from their own fruits are not sown. All the same, the desired plant will not work.

Some of the insect-pollinated hybrids are packed with colored pollinator seeds by breeding firms. These bags have a special symbol - a yellow seed in a pink square and the text "colored seeds - pollinator".

There are many bouquet hybrids, and they are different. It is not difficult to find the most suitable ones for yourself.

For newbies

Hybrids with weak branching have been created. They quickly give an excellent harvest, but they do not bear fruit for long, only 1.5 months. But you do not need to pinch the extra shoots. Plants generally do not need greenhouses, but film shelters will do the trick on cooler days.

F1 hybrids: Ant, Bouquet, Balalaika, Alphabet.

For experienced

Hybrids with strong and medium branching give green plants for a long time both in the greenhouse and in the open field. If they are covered in cool weather, they can bear fruit without reducing the yield until frost. They need more care, they need to be formed. The plants are also early ripening and look very picturesque: their branches resemble bunches of grapes.

F1 hybrids: Clean ponds. Three tankmen, Maryina grove, Junior lieutenant, Buyan, Grasshopper, Cheetah, Kozyrnaya karta, Little son, Bouquet for mom.

For weekend residents

Hybrids with bouquet fruits-gherkins can hang on a branch for a long time and not outgrow. They do not need to be collected too often, they will not turn yellow.

There is also another bonus - there is a record number of zelents in the bouquet - 6-12 pieces! Fertility does not allow gherkins to grow in size, the plant simply does not have enough substances to feed such a number of greens.
F1 hybrids: Toaddy, Balcony, Captain, Be healthy.

Growing features

Caring for cucumbers in bunches is not as difficult as many people think. You just need to know their special needs.

It is not necessary to cook seeds for sowing for a long time. They are only soaked in warm water (30-35 ° C) until they swell, wrapped in a damp cloth and waiting for the roots. Then they are sown in individual containers to a depth of 2 cm.

Multiple cucumbers and feeding require more. Complex fertilizer (aquarin, nitrophoska) is applied 2 weeks after germination before planting in a permanent place, approximately in mid-May.
On the bed, top dressing is continued with the same frequency with a mullein diluted with water (1:10) with the addition of 2 tbsp. spoons of ferriks in a bucket. When the buds open, the plants are sprayed with Epin-Extra or Zircon.

Bunch cucumbers must be grown on a trellis 2 m high. Watered only with warm water.

They are all female flowering, but most do not require pollination.
Well, for those who need it (Faithful friends F1, Alphabet F1, Teremok F1, Compass F1), it is necessary to plant up to 10% of pollinating plants.

In shading conditions, the "beam" is reduced. The number of ovaries may decrease due to excess nitrogen nutrition, dry soil, severe overheating.


Rules for growing gherkins

To get an excellent harvest of small cucumbers, it is important not only to choose the right variety or hybrid, but also to grow the cucumbers correctly. To do this, you should adhere to simple rules for growing gherkins in greenhouses and open ground:

  1. Planting seeds - before planting, it is necessary to decide in what way cucumbers for the greenhouse will be grown: seedling or direct. With the method of planting seeds for seedlings, the harvest will turn out 14 days earlier.
  2. Determination of the place of growth of bushes - for this type of cucumber, you need to choose a place with light and loose soil. The acidity level should not exceed 7.5 pH. Pre-fertilization of the soil will increase the yield of cucumbers in the future.
  3. For constant fruiting, you need to water and loosen the beds as needed. Fertilize the soil at least three times per season with mineral and organic fertilizers. Cucumbers respond well to yeast feeding. It is not difficult to prepare it. A pack of dry yeast is diluted in a 10-liter bucket of water, when the fermentation process begins, the mixture is diluted in 50 liters of water. Plants are watered with this solution.
  4. Tying and pinching, if necessary, will also improve the growth of the borage and will have a beneficial effect on the ripening of the fruit.

What you need to know about pests and diseases of gherkins?

A feature of growing in open beds is the availability of pest damage to bushes. This is due to the misuse of organics. Aphids eat young leaves, the plant dries up and growth stops. If insects are found on the plants, it is necessary to immediately sanitize all beds with gherkins.

When watering in hot sunny weather, the leaves of the plants may turn yellow. This is due to sunburn. Watering is recommended in the early morning or late evening, when the sun has already set.

If the harvest is incorrect, fruits of different sizes ripen on the bushes. Due to old cucumbers, young ones do not have time to ripen, so timely harvest is needed.

If you follow these simple rules, you will get an excellent harvest of delicious and crunchy gherkins.
