Cucumber "Edyp F1" (Cucumis sativus) is a medium early variety intended for field cultivation that stands out with it high resistance to cucumber diseases, particularly downy mildew. Fruit of this variety take on uniform, cylindrical shape. The peel is vividly green coloured, shiny and covered with white tips. The fruit do not tend to deform nor to overgrow. They are delicious and crunchy, hence recommended especially for pickling and marinating. The plants produce almost exclusively female flowers, what significantly increases crops volume.

Cucumber belongs to low-calorie vegetables. Water makes up for over 97% of its mass, while the rest consists of protein, fats, sugars, vitamins C, B1, B2, E and A, as well as such minerals as kalium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. The peel contains the largest amounts of these substances, hence it is recommended to eat cucumbers whole, without peeling them. High basic minerals’ content result in deacidifying effects of the cucumber. This vegetable will also help you to remove the excess water from your body. Cucumber also contains numerous anti-cancer agents - flavonoids, lutein and caffeic acid.

Cucumbers should be grown in humous soils with high water capacity and neutral reaction, enriched with manure or compost. Sow cucumber seeds directly to the ground on the permanent site after May 15th, when the risk of frost is over and soil warms up quickly. Sow seeds in 80-120 x 10-15 cm spacings. Should the temperature fall below 15°C, cover the furrows with aggrotextile in order to speed up the emergence. Harvest the cucumbers gradually, as they ripen, from July until September. The "Edyp F1" variety is particularly recommended for organic cultivation thanks to its high resistance to the most dangerous fungal diseases. It may be grown equally successfully by amateur gardeners and farmers.

Exclusion of the middlemen from the whole process not only makes it possible for us to avoid sending out-of-date seeds that might have been lying too long on a warehouse shelf, but also ensures the most attractive price for top quality products.

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.
