Organic Marketmore cucumber seeds, vigorous and productive
Marketmore cucumber (Cucumis sativus) belongs to the cucurbit family. It is a plant native to the South Asian tropics, having been cultivated in India for over 3000 years. It grows vigorously to a large size, occupying quite a lot of space whether it is left in the ground or tutored.
It is advisable to germinate the seeds in a seedbed at the end of winter in order to save time. 3-4 seeds are placed in each pot, in a flat position above the ground and covered with 0.3-0.5mm of non-compacted substrate. Then water abundantly to settle the substrate.
They are placed in the sun with a temperature of between 12 and 35ºC. After 5 days the first sprouts emerge from the soil. In mid-May, after the last frosts, they can be transplanted into the final pot or in the vegetable garden. Provide loose substrate rich in organic matter and nutrients, by adding worm humus or manure.

It requires at least 6 hours of direct sunlight to provide optimal results. They develop most of their roots in 10cm of the ground, so it is very important to water constantly controlling waterlogging and preventing them from rotting.
Use a planting frame of 80x100cm between plants in all directions. When the plants are about 25cm tall, provide a mesh to support the plants, making it easier for them to climb up vertically. This technique helps to maximise the use of space, maintains good ventilation between the plants and prevents the cucumbers from rotting. It is advisable to install an automatic irrigation system to facilitate this work.
It offers a very abundant production, from early summer to autumn. It produces a large number of cucumbers, up to 22cm long and 3-6cm in diameter, with an intense green colour and a fairly smooth skin. Once the cucumbers are mature the backside starts to yellow, at which point we cut the stalk with scissors to remove it from the plant.
