Nunhems Kian Cucumber - 1000 SEEDS

Description

Nunhems Kian cucumber seeds is a parthenocarpic beit alpha hybrid seeds perfect for both open fields and greenhouses. This high-yielding variety will have you slicing up garden-fresh goodness all season long!  

Benefits: 

  • High yielding: Nunhems Kian cucumber seeds produce up to 300 fruits per plant, thanks to parthenocarpic (no pollination needed) and multi-fruiting qualities. 
  • Fast maturing: Ready to harvest in just 42-45 days (about 1 and a half months), maximizing your growing season. 
  • Reduced waste: Seedless cucumbers mean less waste and higher profits. 
  • Extended shelf life: Maintains freshness for longer, minimizing losses and maximizing market value. 
  • Nunhems Kian is suitable for both open fields and polyhouses, offering flexibility for various setups. 
  • Its vigorous plant offers excellent coverage and potential for vertical gardening. 

Key Features: 

  • Parthenocarpic: Sets fruit without pollination, producing abundant harvests of 2-3 cucumbers per node. 
  • Early Maturing: Reaches harvest in just 42-45 days (about 1 and a half months), maximizing your growing season and profits. 
  • Extended Shelf Life: Maintains freshness for longer, minimizing losses and maximizing market value. 
  • Thrives in Diverse Conditions: Performs well in both open fields and polyhouses, making it suitable for various climates and soil types. 

  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 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 Kian 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 Kian cucumbers. 

 Sowing   

When sowing the Nunhems Kian 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 Kian 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 Kian cucumber 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 Kian 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 Kian 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 Kian 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 Kian 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.
