Benefits:  

  • For Commercial Growers: 
  • Profitable: Nunhems Don cucumber seeds are high yields, early maturity, and disease resistance translate to increased income. 
  • Market-Ready: Attractive appearance and excellent flavor ensure high demand. 
  • Reduced Waste: Disease resistance and strong fruits minimize losses.

  • Abundant Harvest: Enjoy fresh cucumbers regularly throughout the season. 
  • Versatile: Delicious in various dishes and perfect for snacking. 
  • Disease Resistance: Minimizes the need for chemical treatments. 
  • Additional Advantages: 
  • Parthenocarpic: Doesn't require pollination for fruit set, simplifying cultivation. 
  • Trellis-Friendly: Grows well on support, improving fruit quality and ease of harvest. 
  • Extended Shelf Life: Maintains freshness for longer, reducing post-harvest losses. 

Key Features:  

  • High-Yielding: Produces abundant fruits (up to 400 per plant) thanks to strong plant vigor and multiple fruit sets per node. 
  • Fast Maturing: Ready to harvest in just 42-45 days (about 1 and a half months), ideal for maximizing your growing season. 
  • Disease Resistant: Possesses intermediate resistance to downy mildew, a common cucumber threat. 
  • Cylindrical Shape: Nunhems Don cucumber seeds Produces attractive, uniform fruits with a deep green color, perfect for market appeal. 
  • Excellent Flavor: Crisp and refreshing with a balanced sweetness, ideal for salads, wraps, or snacking. 
  • Adaptable: Thrives in diverse climates and soil conditions, from open fields to polyhouses. 
  • Vigorous Plant: Nunhems Don cucumber seeds Offers good ground cover and potential for vertical gardening. 

  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 Don 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 Don cucumbers.  

 Sowing    

When sowing the Nunhems Don 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 Don 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 Don 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 Don 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 Don 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 Don 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 Don 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.
