This is our favorite cucumber. It is sweeter than any other we have tasted. We enjoy eating them like apples when they are young. Lemon cucumbers are great for pickling too. We recommend that you pick the fruit when they are 1 1/2 – 2 1/2″ in diameter.
Marketmore Cucumbers never fail us in hot weather and cool. They grow in abundance and we have picked them in Orinda through late November in some years.
Long narrow cucumbers with will grow to three feet but are best eaten at 18″ long. Fruits will coil when grown on the ground. So, grow on a trellis for straight fruits.
These are mini burpless cucumbers with a sweet flavor, tender medium green skin, and crispy texture. Harvest at four to five inches long.
