    How to grow crispy cucumbers
    I want to give my readers advice.
    In my own garden, every year I grow delicious and crispy cucumbers. And you need very little for this, most importantly, to observe several rules.
    It is necessary to avoid an abundance in the soil of nitrogen fertilizers. It will be useful to feed the infusion of ordinary wood ash.
    You need to water cucumbers with water, the temperature of which should be at least 25 *.
    Be sure to carefully monitor the moisture of the soil.
    Do not thicken the planting.
    Do prishlipku tops of the main stem of plants.
    I follow these rules without fail, and I always have a good harvest.

    The term "self-pollination" for cucumbers is not entirely true. You mean cucumbers are self-fertilized (parthenocarpic), in which the greens do not appear at all without pollination. And yet, as you correctly pointed out, there are varieties of bee-dusted, i.e. requiring cross-pollination. These are better to grow on beds. They are more delicious, although they may have less harvest than parthenocarpic ones. But in greenhouses, in which in most cases there are no insects, such varieties tie the greens badly. It is preferable to grow parthenocarpic varieties there. They do not need pollination, so they, without insects, provide a guaranteed crop in the greenhouse.

    Parthenocarpy in vegetable growing is the ability of plants to tie fruit without pollination. Parthenocarpic cucumbers are grown in conditions of absence of pollination: in greenhouses and under cover, for example. Nonwovens, where there are no pollinating insects. If you see the fruits of such cucumbers in a cut, then the seeds there you will not see. True, in some partheno-carpic varieties, in the presence of pollination, they can become tied, but not throughout the fetus, but only in the upper part, making the cucumbers bulbous, hook-shaped and pear-shaped. Therefore, in summer greenhouses and hotbeds with open ends and transoms, through which bees fly freely, and even more so in the open ground, it is better to plant ordinary bee-dusted varieties, which, when pollinated, give even fruits and seeds.
    Parthenocarpy does not affect the taste and biochemical qualities of the fruit - seedless cucumbers remain the same natural cucumbers. And seeds of such cucumbers are obtained at seed-growing enterprises by crossing plants of several (two or more) morphologically close parent lines. On sale they act as hybrids of F1. At home, such hybridization is almost impossible.

    Parthenocarpic Cucumbers I was advised to plant parthenocarpic cucumbers. Tell us more about them. If they do not have seeds, then they are not quite natural? How do they multiply?
