Superbug cucumbers - the result of the work of breeders who combined in him the long-awaited qualities that traditional varieties did not have: no need for pollination, resistance to bad weather conditions and diseases, high yield of sweet fruits without a bitter taste. However, to realize the potential of hybrids, stated in the reviews, it is necessary to comply with the agrotechnical cultivation of vegetable crops, given the advice of originators.
Superbug cucumbers: growing tips
Culture with beam type development has quickly gained recognition among vegetable growers. However, the breeders did not stop on their laurels and soon brought out hybrids, in the leaf sinuses of which up to 10 female flowers are formed. They were called super-sheaves. Up to 400 crunchy fruits can be harvested from one bush.
Peculiarities of care
Powerful bunches of the ovary are formed on well-lit shoots. Prepare the beds in sunny areas with deep groundwater. The second important point in the cultivation of such varieties - good nutrition. This will allow to realize the potential of culture, otherwise the plant will not have enough energy to “feed” numerous ovaries. The main thing - do not overdo it with nitrogen, stimulating the growth of shoots, but not the formation of flowers and fruits. For superbag cucumbers they organize drip irrigation, in which water gets under the root in small portions.
When the shoots grow, they close the beams of ovaries from the light, thereby reducing their number. It is important the correct formation of lashes. Standard layout:
- The three lower nodes “blinded” by removing the ovary, side shoots, just starting to appear.
- Across the entire height of the central trunk to the trellis, they pinch secondary processes so that only future fruits are present in the nodes.
- The main shoot is thrown over the wire, wrapped around it several times, pinned to the top when it reaches the neighboring specimen.
