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.

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.
