Product Information

(Cucumis sativus) - Organically Grown

Marketmore cucumber is a popular variety for home gardeners and also commercial growers being similar to Green Gem. Fruit forms to 25cm long with a nice crisp texture.

 

How to Grow

Marketmore Cucumber grows best in fertile well drained soil receiving full sun. Improve soil with manures, compost or fertilisers before planting. Sow seeds direct in the garden or in pots then transplant to the garden at 5cm high. When sowing cover seed with 1cm of soil and keep moist until germinated. Space 40cm apart giving them enough room to run freely. Cucumbers will begin to set after 60-80 days.

Tip:Ensure you don't fertilise to heavily with nitrogen or over water as this will promote to much leaf growth. This also tends to promote male flowers but no female flowers which are needed for fruit production.

Blossom End Rot:This will occur when there is a lack of Calcium in your soil. The plant will set fruit but it will rot at the end then drop off the plant. To avoid this use lime in your soil or you can apply a liquid fertiliser of 1L milk to a 9L watering can. Water the leaves of the plant for a fast acting remedy.
