Mini-cucumber KALIMERO F1 can be grown on the ground without support but for best quality clean fruit it is better to grow this cucumber on wires or along a vertical net. Then the production is also higher and can go on for a longer period which will pay for the extra cost. The attractive fruit of KALIMERO F1 is of a nice and shiney green colour, very uniform, without stripes, almost smooth and without a nack.

KALIMERO F1 grows very quickly and it is necessary to pick the fruit daily to have a continuation of the desired grade of fruit. Because of the fast plant development it is vital that the plants of KALIMERO F1 are never short of water of feeding, espacially during the first weeks after planting
