In 2005, our vegetable growers for the first time tried the Dutch cucumber Pasalimo f1 from the Syngenta company. The hybrid began to gain popularity from the first season, confirming the characteristics of the seed producer:
- yield (14.2 kg / m2);
- early maturing (39–41 days);
- for growing in open ground and film greenhouses;
- resistant to diseases (powdery mildew, olive spot, common mosaic virus);
- gherkin (8-10 cm);
- cucumbers do not outgrow, do not taste bitter;
- delicious fresh and canned;
- suitable for transportation, keep their presentation for a long time.
If a decision is made to plant Pasalimo in a seedless way in open ground, then you need to wait for the installation of stable warm weather, usually until early-mid-May, and at first cover the seedlings with a film.
This method is suitable for southern regions with long summers. But still, significantly shorten the fruiting period.
The early ripe Pasalimo variety is sown for seedlings in late April - early May, depending on the region.
Dutch seed does not need to be soaked, as it is processed during production. Seeds are planted in pots with a volume of 0.4–0.5 liters with loose humus soil mixture and watered. To speed up sprouting, the dishes are placed in boxes and covered with foil until sprouts appear.
Water the seedlings often enough, not allowing the soil to dry out.
To prevent acidification of the soil, there should be many wide drain holes in the pots.
Cucumbers came to us from the subtropics, they love warm and moist nutritious loose soil. But so that the bushes do not stretch too actively, it is better to keep the temperature in the range of 20-22 degrees. Water for irrigation is used at the same temperature.
2 weeks after germination, the first feeding of cucumbers with complex mineral fertilizer is carried out.
A week before planting in the ground on warm days, the seedlings are taken out into the fresh air. This will help the plants adapt to new conditions. At first, the plants are shaded. Pasalimo cucumber bushes are planted in the ground at about one month of age after the appearance of 3-4 true leaves.
For the cucumber beds, choose a place open to the sun's rays, preferably protected from the wind. The predecessors should not be vegetables from the pumpkin family. It is better to choose a place in the former garden of tomatoes, eggplant, root vegetables, cabbage, greens.
Important! The roots of cucumbers sprout about 30 cm deep. It is this depth that should be a loose soil saturated with organic matter.
For this, the garden soil is dug up with the addition of compost, scalded sawdust, peat, humus. You can add granular mineral fertilizers.
Before planting seedlings, the garden bed is watered abundantly with hot water. Plants are taken out of the pots carefully, without disturbing the earthen coma. According to the description of the Pasalimo f1 cucumber, the planting pattern is 30 × 60 cm. Usually it is 4–5 bushes per 1 m2.
Advice! If you have doubts about the weather, then it is better to cover the bushes with transparent film for the first time.
The description of the Pasalimo f1 cucumber variety says that the hybrid bush is interdeterminate. That is, the main lash will grow without stopping the entire growing season. This must be taken into account when forming plants. The Pasalimo cucumber variety requires a garter to the support. Already after 5-6 sheets, you can begin to fasten the lashes to the trellises.
It is advisable to remove the flowers up to 6 leaves so that the bush has time to root normally and get stronger. It is also better to remove lateral shoots up to 5-6 leaves. And the next 2 side shoots are pinched on 2-3 leaves. Later, with the growth of the cucumber bush, the lower leaves are also thinned out. This will eliminate thickening in the aboveground part, improve aeration and prevent infection with infections.
Advice! Regular removal of dry leaves and fruit-bearing shoots will stimulate active growth and renewal of the bush.
This will allow you to harvest Pasalimo f1 cucumbers before the onset of cold weather.
Watering and feeding
The soil moisture requirements of cucumbers depend on weather conditions. On hot days, especially during active filling of zelents, daily watering may be required. In cool weather, it is better to exclude watering Pasalimo cucumbers altogether, since supercooled roots can be infected with fungal diseases.
The yield of the Pasalimo f1 hybrid up to 14 kg / m2 is impossible without the introduction of complex mineral fertilizers. Fertilizing cucumbers provides plants with the necessary substances for normal fruiting. Already 10 days after transplanting, the first fertilizers are applied to the soil and repeated every 14 days.
Cucumbers are tied in bunches of 3-6 pieces, regardless of the presence of pollinating insects. Crispy greens begin to pour together 40 days after germination. The fruits do not outgrow and patiently await their harvest. But it must be borne in mind that the more often grown cucumbers break off, the faster the next ones ripen.
Pasalimo f1 fruits are dark green, densely pubescent, with noticeable tubercles. There are weak short stripes and a slight spotting of zelents.
The shape and size allow the Pasalimo variety to be considered a gherkin. You can pick off the greens at the pickle stage for canning. The flesh of the cucumbers is juicy, aromatic and firm.
One of the important qualities of the Pasalimo f1 hybrid is its good transportability and preservation of its presentation after transportation.
