Cucumber "Ela F1" (Cucumis sativus) is a field variety that counts as early. It stands out with exuberant growth and rich crops. "Ela F1" variety is characterized by high resistance to popular cucumber diseases, particularly to downy mildew. It produces numerous regularly shaped and sized fruit that are covered with green skin with paler smudges. The fruit do not tend to yellow. Quite long and slender cucumbers that do not bend are ideal for jarred preserves. "Ela F1" cucumber is perfect for direct consumption, as well as pickling and preserving.
Seeds of the field cucumber should be sown mid-May directly onto the field. Earlier you may prepare seedlings in a warm room. These seedlings are transferred to the garden in the second half of May, after the risk of frost has passed. Cucumbers are thermophilic plants, therefore a sunny border with quickly warming up soil would be perfect for their culture. The soil should also be rich in nutrients and humus. It is of utmost importance that it is constantly moist and permeable. Harvest of ripe fruit takes place from July to September.
