Cucumber - Marketmore ECO

Cucumis sativus

A popular and fast-growing cucumber variety that produces abundant harvests of medium-sized cucumbers with a good and appealing taste. The variety is a predecessor to many of today’s more refined cucumbers, which makes it highly talked about in common parlance. Marketmore is robust and fast-growing, and produces abundant harvests throughout the season. The cucumber variety is especially popular because it can develop even in slightly colder climates and has high disease resistance.

Marketmore is excellent for salads, as a sandwich topping, or for various types of pickling. Something we at Florea highly recommend for this variety is cheese gratin cucumber. All you need is:

  • 600g of Marketmore cucumbers
  • 200g of white cheese (a whole piece)
  • 1 pressed clove of garlic
  • A little rocket/arugula to top with

Cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Then mash the white cheese and mix it with crème fraîche and garlic. Then spread the creamy mixture on the cucumber. Cut the cucumber into 4-5 cm long pieces and place them on a greased sheet or in an ovenproof dish. Bake in the middle of the oven at 200°C for about 20 minutes. Perfect to eat as is or serve with fried meat, fish, or vegetables of various kinds.
