Advantages and disadvantages
Cucumbers Uhazher are distinguished by crisp flesh with a delicate taste. However, in addition to excellent taste characteristics, the description highlights a number of other advantages of the variety:
- long fruiting period;
- high yields;
- attractive presentation of the fruit;
- long storage period;
- high level of resistance to disease.

Cucumber Uhazher, like other varieties, is highly sensitive to cold, so during planting, the soil temperature should reach 17-18 ° C. In the fall, the site is dug up and all residual vegetation is removed. Sour soil is lime.
In the spring, around mid-April, the earth was again dug up and leveled with a rake. Waiting in mid-May, humus is added, as well as mineral fertilizers and wood ash. The soil is treated with a solution of potassium permanganate (so Seeds, and later sprouts, will be protected from diseases), then cover with a dark film.
For sowing seeds, choose a warm day. Seeds are sown to a depth of not more than 1.5-2 cm. After emergence, the beds are thinned out, leaving the strongest plants. The distance between them should be about 20-25 cm.
Seedling method allows for a couple of weeks to accelerate the fruiting process.
Cucumber Uhazher f1 sown on seedlings and a month later planted on the site, following a number of rules:
- cups with a depth of about 9 cm are filled with light and fertile soil, sowing is carried out at a distance of about 1.5-2 cm from the surface;
- landings are made when at night the temperature is set at not lower than 14 ° C, in the daytime - 18-20 ° C;
- the earth is watered 2 times a week, in the morning, with warm, settled water;
- Do not forget to use fertilizers;
- 10 days before planting on the site begin hardening seedlings.
Good care improves yields
In order to obtain the desired result and achieve high yield of cucumbers Uhazher f1, it is necessary to properly care for the plants. Key recommendations:
- in the summer, feed cucumbers 4-5 times with mineral and organic fertilizer options;
- initially moderate watering: 4 liters of water per 1 sq. km. m every 5 days;
- when flowering, and then fruiting, use 10 liters of water per 1 square. m every 3 days;

The variety of cucumbers Uhazher f1, like any other, can be affected by pests, namely:
- spider mite;
- melon aphid;
If dots of yellow hue and a barely distinguishable cobweb became visible on the leaves, a spider mite got into the plant. Since he loves low humidity, the first remedy against the pest will be spraying the leaves in hot weather up to several times a day.
An infusion of onions or garlic also comes to the rescue. It is used several times during the summer. Dill is planted next to cucumbers: it attracts ladybugs, which are enemies of ticks. Planting seedlings as early as possible reduces the risk of infection. Another option is the treatment of plants with insecticides.
