We increase the ovary of cucumbers for a rich harvest
Cucumbers are one of the most popular vegetable crops that are widely used in cooking and have many health benefits. However, in order to get a rich harvest of juicy and tasty cucumbers, you need to pay special attention to the ovary process.

Cucumber ovary is the process of fruit formation on the plant. The better and more abundant the ovary, the greater the harvest you can get. Therefore, if you want to enjoy fresh cucumbers from your garden, you should pay special attention to increasing the ovary.
The first step to increasing cucumber fruit production is choosing the right variety. Some cucumber varieties have a higher setting capacity than others. For example, mid- and late-ripening varieties usually have more abundant ovary than early varieties. It is also worth paying attention to the characteristics of the variety indicated on the seed packaging and choosing those that are suitable for your region and growing conditions.
The second important factor is proper plant care. Cucumbers love warmth and moisture, so it is necessary to provide them with regular watering and maintain optimal air and soil temperatures. It is also worth paying attention to fertilizing, which will help the plants receive the necessary nutrients for the development and formation of fruits.
Another important aspect is the correct pruning of plants. Cucumbers tend to produce many side shoots, which can rob energy and nutrients from the main stem and ovary. Therefore, it is recommended to regularly remove excess shoots and leaves so that the plant can concentrate on fruit formation.
It is also worth paying attention to the pollination of cucumbers. In nature, this occurs due to insects, but in closed ground or greenhouse conditions, pollination can be difficult. In this case, you can use special pollinating brushes or simply shake the plants to help the pollen move from male to female flowers.
