|Cucumber (cucumis sativus) is a widely cultivated creeping vine plant in the cucurbitaceae family that bears usually cylindrical fruits, which are used as culinary vegetables.Considered an annual plant,there are three main varieties of cucumber—slicing, pickling, and seedless—within which several cultivars have been created.Fruits are good for people suffering from constipation, jaundice and indigestion. It is rich in vitamin b and c as well as minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, iron and potassium. Fruits contain 0.4% Protein, 2.5% Chos, 1.5Mg iron and 2 mg of vitamin c per 100g fresh weight.Cucumber prefers slightly lower temperature than water melon and muskmelon. The optimum temperature is 26.40 °C. If the temperature goes above 30 °C, the production is reduced considerably .Seeds of cucumber geminates well if the day temperature is 20- 30 °C. It is essentially a warm season crop but is successfully grown in tropical, subtropical and temperature regions. This is very susceptible to frost. Excess humidity promotes disease like powdery mildew, downy mildew, anthracnose & pests such as fruitfly.The soils should not crack in summer and should not be water logged in rainy season. The soil ph should be 6-7.A well drained loamy soil is preferred for cucumber. Lighter soils that warm quickly in spring are usually used for early yields. In heavier soils vine growth will be greater and fruits mature late.
