It’s no secret that the condition for a stable and high yield of a crop is the right choice of variety (hybrid) and cultivation technology. The same goes for the cucumber. In the selection of cucumber, breeders pay special attention to yield, resistance to major diseases, attractive appearance of greens (color and size), taste fresh and canned.
Hybrids for greenhouses

Cucumber grows well in the open ground. In turn, varieties and hybrids for cultivation in the open ground must meet the following requirements: to be early maturing and early maturing, to be characterized by increased cold resistance, heat resistance, resistance to powdery mildew and peronosporosis, to have high regeneration ability. For outdoor cultivation is suitable hybrids Atos F1, F1 Dragoons, Christine F1 Carolina F1, F1 Porthos.
Ultra early maturing hybrids of Athos F1 and F1 Dragoon guarantee a high yield. Their attractive fragrant gherkins are suitable not only for fresh consumption, but also for pickling and marinating.
Hybrid Athos F1 female flowering type in the node forms from 5 to 7 greens length 6-9 cm, dark green color, with white pubescence.
Ultra early-ripening hybrid Athos F1 guarantees a high yield
Hybrid Dragoons F1 with limited growth of side shoots forming in the nodes 2-3 silence, length of 10-12 cm gherkins with a dense and solid structure of the pulp with a small seed chamber, without bitterness and emptiness, with a delicate and thin skin that turns yellow.
Hybrid Dragoon F1
Get a consistently high yield even in adverse growing conditions is possible with hybrids Porthos F1, Christina F1, Carolina F1.
In the hybrid Porthos F1 in the nodes are formed by 3-4 dark green fruit with large tubercles and light brown pubescence, 10-12 cm long, which retain their attractive appearance, the fruits are suitable for marinating.
Early maturing hybrid Christina F1 female flowering type, which consist of 2-3 pieces in the node. Hybrid with excellent taste in fresh and pickled form, has a high resistance to the virus of cucumber mosaic.
Carolina F1 will delight with its cucumbers with excellent taste without bitterness, which are formed in the node of 2-3 pieces and are especially good to taste when marinating. Hybrid has not only high yield, but also resistance to major diseases of cucumber.
