Cucumber Corinto F1 Slicer Seeds (Enza Zaden | 1,000 Seeds)
Cucumber corinto seeds are very productive slicer type hybrid cucumber from Enza Zaden, suitable for both open field and greenhouse production. Corinto is recommended for all year-round production. The plant is fast growing and quite generative which sets fruit easily. The fruits are averagely 20-22cm in length with small seed cavity. Skin is dark shiny green and thick enough to endure harvesting and handling.
SOME CULTURAL PRACTICE OF CUCUMBER CORINTO F1 SEEDS (Enza Zaden )
Requires warm, well-drained soil high in fertility, with a pH of 6–6.8. Consistent, adequate irrigation is needed to produce an abundant crop. Cucumbers are very sensitive to cold. Make sure both soil and air temperatures have warmed prior to planting. Using plastic mulch and row covers will greatly enhance the vigor and potential yields of cucumbers by providing warmth and insect protection. For greenhouse or high tunnel production.
Sow indoors in 50-cell plug trays, 1–2 seeds/cell, 3–4 weeks before transplanting. Keep temperature above 70°F (21°C) day and 60°F (16°C) night. Transplant 12″ apart in rows 5–6′ apart. Do not disturb roots when transplanting.
Wait until soil is warm, at least 70°F (21°C). Cucumber seeds will not germinate at a soil temperature below 50°F (10°C). Sow 2 seeds/ft., 1/2″ deep, in rows 6′ apart. Thin to 12″ apart.
Practice crop rotation, residue sanitation, and choose disease-resistant varieties. Control insect pests to prevent bacterial wilt.
Exclude cucumber beetles with row covers at planting, or control with insecticides such as pyrethrin or azadirachtin.
Once fruit bearing begins, pick daily.
Hold cucumbers at 45–50°F (7–10°C) and 90% relative humidity for up to 2 weeks.
If seedless cucumbers cross-pollinate with seeded cucumbers, they will yield seeded fruits. Generally, seedless types are grown separately in greenhouses with insect screens installed to prevent cross-pollination of seeded and seedless varieties.
DAYS TO MATURITY:
From direct seeding; subtract about 10 days if transplanting.
