Pickling cucumber "Rufus F1" (Cucumis sativus) is gherkin-type, medium-early variety. Great productivity, full resistance to cucumber scab and tolerance of downy mildew are the most important advantages of this cultivar. These vigorous plants sprout numerous blooms, from which regularly shaped, small, slender, warty cucumbers develop. Fruit harvested from the "Rufus F1" cultivation are recommended to be pickled. Preserved cucumbers do not lose their nutritional value. They actually become richer in vitamins, particularly vitamin C, that is vital to overall resistance of your body.
Direct sow should be conducted in late spring, after the last frosts. We should select a sheltered site with quickly warming up soil for the F1 cucumber cultivation without covers. Plants also need fertilization. Rich crops of those great, small, crunchy cucumbers can be harvested in July, August and September.
