Cultivated cucumbers have been have been grown for 5000 year and were used as ancient Egyptian grave offerings 4000 years ago. It was only during the middle ages that it became widely known in Europe. Greenhouse cultivation began in 19th century England and by 1935 its cultivation in Germany had extended to cover 110 ha.
Biodynamic grown cucumbers have been intensively selected by Kultursaat e.V. for their flavoursome taste. It was often necessary to taste each cucumber individually in order to select the best seed.

Cultural tip:
Cucumbers require a well prepared, open and warm soil in order to thrive. Well rotted manure and compost are as beneficial as is soil that is moist but not waterlogged. Cut grass (hay) provides an ideal mulch. Early fruit fall can be countered by removing excess fruit.
The Arola and Helena varieties bear only female flowers and hence should not be grown together with varieties that have both male and female flowers. ?
