story: originally grown from a seed packet from an organic seed company, the marketmore is a lovely green cucumber that enjoys a long cropping season.
sow: indoors in april.
requirements: Like other cucumber varieties, this would do best in a greenhouse or conservatory. full sun, and moist soil with a climbing trellis.
harvesting: for eating, pick fruits when young and firm. for seed harvesting, leave the fruit on the plant for as long as possible and be sure to let them fully ripen to yellow.
please remember, we will only send out three packs of seed to first-season growers. if you order more than this, you are likely to receive just three packs to begin with. this is to ensure we get plenty of data in return, and to keep our stocks sustainable for years to come.
