Cucs - any difference ?

This year I grew Marketmore cucs. ( males and females left on). Once weather improved grew just as well outdoors as in the greenhouse. Up to about 9 ins long ( 225 mms for you metricites )
Any recommendations for next year ? Is there any difference at all in taste or productivity ?




You could try an all female variety such as Femspot or Louise I have grow these and they are not bitter as some the others or you could try something like crystal lemon/apple tried them last and they were nice. This year I am growing telegraph and Cucumber Carosello Mezzo Lungo (Cucumis melo) just for something different.

Thanks S. , I've never heard of Crystal lemon/apple but if I can find them I'll try them, and one of the others you mentioned next year.

I'm doing 'Minimunch' this year...excellent flavour and no prickles. last year I did 'Iznik', which were good as well, but rather prickly!
