First Marketmore Cucumber
July 13, 2010
I picked the first Marketmore cucumber on Tuesday (July 13). Marketmore matures in about 60 days. produces a long 9 - 11 inch straight cucumber with white spines. It is resistent to many cucumber diseases. It's important to keep the cucumbers picked to prevent the seeds from maturing otherwise the vine will stop producing.
The cucumber came in just a little over 9½ - inches! This is a beautiful looking cucumber if you ask me. I've grown cucumbers in the past usually the seedless varieties and straight eights but neither performed the way this marketmore plant is performing. I will certainly be saving seeds for next year. The plant is loaded with cucumbers so it looks like I'm going to have a bumper crop.
