Every respected cook has his own recipe, but all agree that quality cucambers are absolutely essential. Presented variety is ideal for pickles and other preserves.

"Cornichon de Paris" is a cucamber variety that all gourmets will admire. It belongs to mid-early varieties. The fruit are short and compact and should be harvested when they reach 3 to 5 cm in length. Green skin is loosely covered by thick warts. Fruit do not show a tendecy to yellowing with time.

Cucambers provide a multitude of culinary possibilities. Each cook book includes at least a few recipes for pickles. The taste and aroma depends on the spices and add-ons. Cucambers can be preserved whole, cut in sticks, sliced or cut in quarters. Mustard marinade with hot peppers and fresh onions becomes more and more popular these days.

Pickled cornichons are a welcomed, refreshed addition to your daily menu during autumn and winter.

Cucambers are the second-most purchased seasonal vegetable in Europe after tomatoes. Although their cultivation presents some problems, cucambers are widely planted in our house gardens. Cucambers should be sown into the ground in groups or rows close to mid-May, when the risk of ground frosts is gone. These plants prefer well lit, rapidly warming up sites with humous, alkaline soil. Do not forget to water cucambers regularly with lukewarm, never cold, water. Cucamber planting sites should also be regularly weeded and fertilized.

The quality control process

All our seeds must pass a four-stage quality control process.

Stage one begins with a careful selection of the suppliers. Than we proceed with controlling their crops, foreign producers are not excluded from the quality control process. Plants are checked at every stage of their development: when they start to grow, during blooming and when they start bearing fruit (seeds). At this stage the most important thing is to ensure proper spacing of the plants. Thanks to that obtaining the desired morphological characteristics of each particular species or variety, such as colour, height and shape, can be ensured.

Stage two consists of a detailed verification tests in laboratory conditions. With the use of the highest quality equipment by the highly qualified staff, our suppliers perform more than 30 000 quality checks annually. The seeds that do not meet our requirements are subject to technological refining processes, including drying, cleaning, upgrading and testing again.

Stage three starts with sowing seeds in selected control plots. That way we obtain valuable, exact information concerning their germination that must be maintained at an appropriate level. Simultaneously, the varietal identity of each species is checked at this stage.

Stage four takes place in our warehouses and consists of eliminating seeds that have been stored for too long on our shelves and replacing them with new batches. Each package is stamped with a unique batch number and also with the sow-by-date.

All four stages combined allow us to state with confidence that the seeds we deliver comply with the highest standards and have completed all required control stages with flying colours.
