Cucumber "Anulka" (Cucumis sativus) is gherkin, field variety intended for medium early harvest. It yields rich crops of fruit that ripen gradually, hence you need to pick them almost every day. It shows high tolerance to downy mildew and cucumber mottle mosaic virus and resistance to cucumber scab. It develops very short, yet slender and regularly shaped fruit that are ideal for pickled gherkins. They are covered with vividly green skin that sports small warts appearing in small numbers.
Cucumber belongs to thermophilic plants, so you should choose a sunny and warm site for its cultivation. Seeds are sown in May, when the soil has sufficiently warmed up and young plants would not be exposed to frost. Seeds have been covered with a special coating, what ensures optimal conditions in the germination phase. This action also protects seeds from diseases caused by soil pathogens. "Anulka" cucumber should be grown in rows 60 - 80 cm apart. Two or three seeds are placed in holes in 15 - 20 cm spacings. The soil should be rich in nutrients and water and permeable.
