Cucumber variety Marketmore
A heavy-cropping variety (that will need main stem support) with good flower and fruit development. Consistent large fruit size of around 20cm long. Marketmore has good shelf life and resistance to diseases such as powdery mildew. Perfect for slicing to accompany a salad, for use in sandwiches. A variety that you will just love to to grow and taste.

Cucumber Care
Your cucumber plants will have been grown indoors with artificial heat and light to make sure they are as healthy as possible for you. This does however mean that you shouldn't put them straight outside when it's too cold. The general rule of thumb is to start putting your cucumber plants outside for a few hours a day from the start of May to acclimatise it (bring it in if a late frost looks likely). If your lucky enough to have your own greenhouse you can start planting a couple of weeks earlier, and if it is heated, even earlier. A nice balanced feed will work wonders, a tomato feed will be absolutely fine.
