Description

Nunhems US 800 Cucumber is a hybrid cucumber variety that is known for its high yield, long shelf life, and excellent quality. It is a light green cucumber with smooth skin and tender flesh. The fruits are about 14-16 centimeters (about 6.3 in) long and 3.5-4 centimeters (about 1.57 in) wide. They have a mild flavor and are perfect for salads, sandwiches, and other dishes. 

Benefits:  

Disease Resistance and Adaptability: 

  • Robust and Resilient: Thrives in diverse climates and soil conditions, perfect for beginners and seasoned gardeners alike. 
  • Disease Fighter: Nunhems US 800 cucumber seeds offers intermediate resistance to powdery and downy mildew for a healthier crop. 
  • Open Field & Polyhouse Champion: Performs well in both indoor and outdoor settings, offering growing flexibility. 

Flavor and Culinary Versatility: 

  • Mildly Sweet Delight: Crisp and refreshing taste that elevates salads, sandwiches, and crudités. 
  • Culinary All-Star: Ideal for fresh eating, pickling, and even juicing. 
  • Seedless Convenience: Enjoy cucumbers with minimal waste and easier preparation. 

Key Features:  

  • High Yield and Market Perfection: 
  • Prolific Producer: Expect harvests of 14-16 cm long, 3.5-4 cm wide cucumbers, with 2-3 fruits per node on the main stem. 
  • Fast Maturing: Ready to pick in just 55-60 days, maximizing your growing season. 
  • Flawless Appearance: Light green, smooth skin and tender flesh make US 800 a supermarket star. 
  • Long Shelf Life: Maintains freshness for extended periods, reducing waste and increasing profit. 

  Land Preparation:     

  • Loosen the Soil: Break up the ground 20-25 cm (about 9.84 in) deep using a spade, rototiller, or tractor. This aeration improves drainage, facilitates root growth, and incorporates organic matter.  
  • Strike the Right Balance: Cucumbers thrive in slightly acidic soil with a pH of 6.0-7.0. Test your soil's pH and adjust accordingly. Use lime to raise pH and elemental sulfur to lower it.  
  • Organic Boost: Enrich the soil with well-rotted manure or compost at a rate of 2-4 kg/m². This increases organic matter content, enhances drainage, and provides essential nutrients.  
  • Fertilizing for Success: Consider adding a balanced fertilizer like 10-10-10 NPK at a rate of 1 kg/100 m (about 328.08 ft) ² before planting. This provides additional nutrients for optimal growth.  
  • Create Mounds: Build raised beds 15-30 cm (about 11.81 in) high using a mixture of soil, compost, and aged manure. Ensure good drainage holes are present.  
  • Refine the Surface: Rake the soil to a fine tilth, removing any large clods or debris. This creates a smooth and welcoming environment for Nunhems US 800 cucumber seeds.  
  • Furrows or Hills: Depending on your planting method, form planting hills or furrows. Ensure proper drainage by making them slightly elevated.  
  • Mulch Magic: Cover the prepared bed with a thin layer of mulch (straw, hay, or wood chips). This suppresses weeds, retains moisture, and regulates soil temperature, creating a favorable microclimate for Nunhems US 800 cucumbers.  

 Sowing    

When sowing the Nunhems US 800 cucumber crop, the process depends on several factors, including your climate, preferred method, and variety. Here's a breakdown of the two main options:  

Direct Sowing:  

  • Suitable for: Warmer climates with consistent soil temperatures above 68°F (20°C) after the last frost.  
  • Timing: Sow Nunhems US 800 seeds directly outdoors when the soil has warmed sufficiently, typically late spring or early summer. Ensure no risk of frost remains.  
  • Method: Make planting holes or furrows about 1 inch deep and spaced according to cucumber seeds (typically 12-18 inches apart). Sow 2-3 seeds per hole and cover lightly with soil. Water gently.  

Starting Seeds Indoors:  

  • Suitable for: Colder climates or early harvests.  
  • Timing: Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks (about 1 and a half months) before the last frost date.  
  • Method: Use individual pots or seed trays filled with seed starting mix. Sow 1-2 seeds per pot, 1/2 inch deep. Place in a warm location (70-80°F) with bright light. Water regularly keeps soil moist but not soggy. Once seedlings have developed true leaves, thin to one strongest plant per pot. Harden off seedlings for a week before transplanting outdoors when soil temperatures are warm, and all risk of frost has passed.  

 Transplanting:     

Preparing the Soil:  

Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil.  

  • Amend the soil with organic matter like compost or aged manure to improve drainage and nutrient content.  
  • Dig planting holes twice the diameter of the seedling pots, spaced according to Nunhems US 800 seedlings (typically 12-18 inches apart).  

Transplanting Technique 

  • Gently remove seedlings from pots without disturbing the roots.  
  • Place the seedling in the planting hole at the same depth it was in the pot.  
  • Fill the hole with soil and gently firm it around the base of the plant.  
  • Water generously settles the soil and eliminates air pockets.  

Aftercare 

  • Water regularly, especially during hot weather, to keep the soil moist but not soggy.  
  • Mulch around the plants to retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.  
  • Provide support for vining varieties using poles, trellises, or netting.  
  • Monitor pests and diseases and take appropriate action if necessary.  

Harvesting:    

  • Pickling Nunhems US 800 cucumbers are usually harvested earlier than slicing varieties when they are smaller and firmer. Their skin should be bumpy, and the blossom end should be closed.  
  • Slicing Nunhems US 800 cucumbers typically require more time to reach full size and have smoother skin with an open blossom end.  
  • Use sharp pruners or a knife to cut the cucumber stem, leaving about 1 inch of stem attached to the vine. Avoid pulling or twisting, as this can damage the plant.  
  • Harvest cucumbers regularly, ideally every 1-2 days, to encourage continuous fruit production.  
  • Avoid harvesting Nunhems US 800 cucumbers in the heat of the day, as they may be wilted or sunburned. Early morning or evening are ideal times.  

Storage:    

  • Crisper drawer: This is the best place for most cucumbers. Wrap individual Nunhems US 800 cucumbers in a damp paper towel or place them in a breathable container to maintain moisture but prevent sweating. Avoid plastic bags, as they can trap moisture and accelerate spoiling.  
  • Zip-top bags: For longer storage (up to 1-2 weeks), place each cucumber in a separate zip-top bag with a metal spoon inside. The spoon absorbs ethylene gas, which hastens ripening. Remove any condensation that forms in the bag.  
  • Cool pantry: If your pantry stays cool and dark, you can store unwashed cucumbers there for a few days. Place them on a paper towel to absorb any excess moisture.
