Cucumber F1 Burpless Tasty Green is a very popular variety with medium dark green fruits. It is a suitable for growing outdoors variety and very easy to grow, it is also resistant to mildew. The seeds of this variety we offer are 100% Naturals.
 
It is early maturing and it produces for more time. Its fruits has a tender and crisp outer skin and a very juicy and sweet flesh. It is a cucumber that hasn't the typical bitter taste and is more digestible than other varieties.

Planting is from January to April indoors and from May outside. In sunny place. The cucumber needs at least 21 to germinate, the best it is sow first in seedbeds protected from the cold. We sow the seeds 1 cm deep. We can transplant them into pots when the plant has its first leaves, but it is better to wait for the end of May to move them outside. Then, we can leave them in large pots or planted in the garden, always leaving a space of about 50 cm between plants.

We mustn't plant different varieties of cucumber together because they can cross-pollinate and the fruits of all plants would be bitter. We must always keep them well watered, especially during times of drought and always in full sun. The cucumber plant is like a creeper, so you will need to put a guide of about 1.5 m, so it can be grown in pots. We can also let the plant creeps along the ground, but we must leave a gap of almost 2 m between plants and when the fruits grow, put up a stand to prevent touching the ground, because they could rot.

When the plant reaches the top of the guide, we have to prune the tips, just two leaves over the last flower, so we favor the growth of more shoots that will produce more flowers and fruit. If we let creep the plant, we have to prune when the plant reaches the meter and a half.

Harvesting will be from July to October. The fruits are ripen when they reach 20-25 cm in length and they are green, if we let yellowing the flavour will become bitter. To harvest, the best it is cut the cucumber plant 2 cm above its union with the stem. We mustn't throw the fruit because we can hurt the plant. If we continuously harvest, we will have more production. Cucumber doesn't hold good storage, so it is advisable to eat it within a few days after it is collected.

Cucumber is usually eaten raw, in salads and sandwiches or as a garnish. Other forms of use is pickled, baked, or sauteed with other vegetables.

Cucumber is very moisturizing because it contains 90% water and it is ideal for weight loss diets, it helps to eliminate toxins. It combats sun damage because it helps control the acidity of the skin. It is a source of vitamins (A, B, C, E and K) phytonutrients, flavonoids, potassium, magnesium and silicon. It fights diabetes, lowers cholesterol and controls blood pressure. It prevents oral diseases and eliminates bad breath. It improves growth of hair and nails. It improves joint health. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-hemorrhagic properties.

It is advisable to plant it near garlic, onions, cabbage, turnips, peas, beans, lettuce, corn, borage and dill. However we must not plant potatoes, pumpkin and tomatoes and other herbs.
