Japanese breeders from Sakata bred a high-yielding hybrid variety of yellow-fruited zucchini. Squash F1 Yasmin - a plant for cultivation in the greenhouse and open ground mid-ripening period. In Russia, Gavrish, the largest supplier of seeds to the domestic market, deals with the distribution of the variety.

Yasmin variety squash seeds in an unusual blue package - pickled, do not need additional protection. A crop is planted in the soil with seeds and seedlings, when the temperature of the soil layer at the depth of the palm reaches +12 degrees. Seedlings at the age of 20-30 days or seeds that are crooked out are planted in prepared holes Ø 40-50 cm, 10 cm deep.
The acid reaction of the soil under the Yasmin F1 zucchini is preferably neutral or slightly alkaline. Before planting seedlings in the hole make a bucket of humus or compost, dig and spill abundantly with water. After planting, the hole is mulched 2-3 cm compost. If necessary, deoxidize the soil, crushed chalk, lime, dolomite are added.
In the case of shelter ridge opaque film, under the seedlings and sprouts squash make the cut crosswise. The seedling, which grew in 1-2 decade of April, needs an extensive shelter under the arcs. On cool nights, the plant does not overcool, and in the daytime the bush is tempered with the covering material removed, the soil does not dry out. Squas varieties Yasmin poorly tolerate shading.

The predecessors of zucchini
Solanaceae, legumes, root vegetables, cabbage
Degree of watering
Abundant - the plant is moisture-loving
Light fertilized soils. Ph neutral, slightly alkaline
Plant shading tolerates painful
Peculiarities of fruit ripening
Early removal - over-ripe fruit prone to cracking
Watering and feeding
During the development of the Yasmin shrub before the fruiting begins, the zucchini is watered sparingly: 2-3 liters per plant with loosening after the topsoil has dried. Fruiting plant is watered twice as abundant. Evening watering is preferable: the moisture is completely absorbed into the soil. When watering from watering can absorb the roots and leaves of the plant. On hot days, water consumption for irrigation increases. At the end of the growing season, watering is reduced; a week and a half before harvesting the bushes, squash stop watering.
During the autumn digging of the soil, organic fertilizers are introduced under the zucchini; in loose soil, the roots of the Yasmin zucchini variety are being actively developed. During the growing season, feeding is carried out 1 time in 3 weeks. Aqueous solutions of mineral fertilizers alternate with infusions of mullein and bird droppings. Plant development and fruit growth stimulates watering with a slight addition of weekly infusion of weeds.
Regular foliar dressing with a frequency of 1.5-2 weeks are more effective root. Depleted solutions of nitrogen fertilizers for spraying the leaves of fruiting zucchini are prepared for single use. Excessive fascination with nitrogen fertilizers threatens with the accumulation of nitrates in fruits.
Stocks for the winter
Before the end of the season, Yasmin variety squash bushes are prepared for gathering fruits for storage without processing. Watering stops. Flowers, ovaries, small fruits are removed. Leave on the bush 2-3 fruit zucchini of the correct form, without damage. September and August are rich in morning dew, which is fraught with rotting fruit.
Experienced gardeners pour under squash bushes with the appearance of the first ovaries of pine and spruce needles. Fruits practically do not touch the ground on a blown resin litter. When loosening, dry needles remain on the soil surface. After digging for a long time does not decompose in the soil, being a natural conductor of air and moisture to the roots of the bush.
The precocity, high yield, culinary characteristics of fresh fruits and canned zucchini varieties Yasmin made the variety popular. Rave reviews gardeners contribute to the spread of yellow-Japanese Yasmin F1 on Russian beds.
