One of the best bee pollinated cucumbers for any weather!
Bee pollinated cucumbers are indispensable for the gardener. Due to pollination, these cucumbers are much tastier and healthier, since the seeds formed in the fruits contain a large amount of vitamins and carbohydrates.
The presence of male flowers in bee pollinated hybrids helps not overload the plants with crops. Slowed growth of fruits prevents their overgrowth. Even dustless ovaries (mini-pickles) can be preserved. Bee pollinating hybrids cucumbers are more resistant to diseases and pests. They are shade-tolerant, with reduced demands on the sum of effective temperatures, more biologically active substances accumulate in the fruits. And in salting they simply have no equal!
It is generally accepted that the bee-pollinated hybrids are superior to parthenocarpic hybrids in salting qualities, since they have a denser consistency of the fruit and a richer mineral composition. And it is also important that reduced lighting requirements make it possible to grow bee-pollinated hybrids in most light zones.
