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. Disease resistant.

Harvesting: Pick, and pick some more! Overly mature cucumbers on the vine will slow production of new cucumbers. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit, as stems are fragile. To increase the quality and storage time, once picked, immediately immerse in cold water to disperse "field heat".

Many years of success

5 out of 5 stars Jun 16, 2019
I have grown Marketmore cucumbers for many years because they are versatile and dependable. They are good in salads and have also been my favorite cucumber for making Bread & Butter pickles. Although they aren't singled out as pickling cukes, I think they make great B&Bs. I have also used them for sweet pickles and dill pickles and think they are just about the best, partly because they are so prolific and partly because of the excellent results. Seeds from Botanical Interests have always had a high rate of germination and I will continue to grow this variety, along with a couple others, as long as I garden.

Fast germination

My family member gave me different seeds to start I added them to a wet papertowel in a plastic bag those took almost a week to show any signs of opening. I started these at the same time and it was only a day later and they were sprouting. Very excited to try them.

The germination rate was perfect. Once they got to growing and producing they lasted all summer long and made the BEST bread and butter pickles ever, according to all my friends and family!! Highly recommend!
