Developed at Cornell University, the "Marketmore" cucumbers have become the standard for American gardens. Large, straight 9" cucumbers, maturing sooner than the older varieties.
When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny, well drained location and sow
seed in the late spring when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is
past. For earlier crop start indoors 4-6 weeks before setting out. For best
results, loosen soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and
smooth with rake. Firm soil over seed and keep moist.
Care: Keep soil moist, and feed monthly. Tie vines on trellis to save
Harvesting: Pick at any size up to 6-8"/15-20 cm. and before fruit color
begins to turn yellow. Pick regularly so fruit will continue to form.
