Cucumber – Marketmore (Organic)

£2.00£4.00

A versatile, productive variety with luscious, dark green fruits throughout the summer. As British reggae artist Macka B makes clear in his ode to ‘Cocombers’ (see youtube for reference) the humble cucumber has many a good reason to grow and eat it. The Marketmore variety produces luscious, cylindrical, dark green fruits and does so in abundance throughout the summer. It grows well in both poor and rich soil conditions and will ensure you are full of good electrolytes for the rest of the year.

Cucumber tips: For best results start cucumbers in pots in March and plant out in a polytunnel or glasshouse in April/May. Some varieties are well suited to outdoor growing and will withstand lower temperatures. Outdoor cucumbers should be planted a bit later (mid May) to avoid any risk of frost damage.
