Cucumber Marketmore Organic Seeds

Cucumis sativus

Item #3123

60 days. Introduced in 1968 by Cornell University, Marketmore is a beautiful, dark green cucumber that’s ready to pick when 6" - 8" long. Fruits keep their size and shape even under poor weather conditions unlike other varieties that may curl and become misshapen. The 4' - 6' long vines continue to produce with regular picking.

This packet sows six mounds of 3 plants per mound.

Days to Emerge:
5-10 days

Seed Depth:
1/2"

Seed Spacing:
Plant mounds, 6 seeds per mound

Row Spacing:
mounds 4' apart

Thinning:
When 3 leaves, thin to 3 plants per mound


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperatures are warm, at least 65°F.

When to start inside: 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost.

Harvesting: Pick Marketmore regularly at 6" - 8" long or smaller. Plants stop producing if there are overly mature cucumbers on the vine. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit to break off. Once picked, immediately immerse in cold water to disperse “field heat”; this increases quality and life of picked fruit.
