Grade characteristics

Bush features

Flowering is plentiful and long. Flowers, for the most part, are of a female type. On each plant many ovaries form: from 2-3 to 4 or more in regions with a warm sunny climate.

Description of the fetus

Fruits of dark green color, medium size, reach 12-13 cm in length, weighing about 90-100 gr. They are even, but with a tuberous surface and short but frequent hairs on it. The difference is that the fruits ripen at the same time, reaching one size.

Planting varieties

To grow cucumbers that will be planted in open ground, the seeds of the SV 4097 cucumber must be sown in late April to a depth of 1.5-2 cm. Seedlings should be planted in early June. It should be borne in mind that the variety has a well-developed root system, therefore, the capacity for planting it must be large.

For growing in greenhouses, depending on their height, use the following methods of growing:

  • on a high trellis;
  • with tossing over the trellis.

The first method is suitable for tall greenhouses. The second method can be used for both low and high greenhouses.


The plant requires attention

The first stage of care is to reduce the difference between day and night temperatures by lowering the average daily. This is necessary so that the bush and root system of the plant are well formed.

It is also important to monitor the level of salts (EU) in the soil: in the first five days, their level should not exceed 1.8-2.1. Then it must be increased to 2.5-2.7 and maintained for about a week. Such a gradual increase has a good effect on the development of the root and the aerial parts of the plant. But, in the end, the EU level should not be more than 3.4, as this can threaten burns of the root system.

Particular attention should be paid to good lighting and humidity. From this, the parameters of the fruits can change. At too high temperatures, cucumbers are elongated, and at low temperatures they are short.

Foliar top dressing of plants is also important, which should be carried out twice a week. It consists in the alternation of dressing with microelements and fertilizer with calcium nitrate.

Removing yellowed leaves also positively affects the plant. After the first harvest, provided that there are more than 18 leaves on the bush, it is necessary to cut the first 3-4. Subsequently, the procedure is repeated. At least 18 leaves must always remain on the plant.
