I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Marketer Cucumber Seed
Cucumis sativus Marketer Cucumber Seed (55 days)
1 gram seed package/25-35 seeds
Marketer cucumber has been an all time favorite since 1943.
It produces very tasty 9" long deep green cucumbers.
Classic cucumber shape you have come to know for a slicer.
Very productive 3-5' vines.
Marketer cucumber is just perfect for slicing, salads and pickles when picked small.
Of course those of you into home spa treatments will use them as cucumber slices to reduce wrinkles and swelling around the eyes. Don't worry I won't tell your secret ;) All sorts of good treatments come from the garden!
1948 Burgess Seed Co. Catalogs says about Marketer cucumber... "The dark green fruits are similar in appearance to A&C. Size 2 1/4 X 7 3/4 inches. Slightly taped at each end and are ready for pickling a few days earlier than A&C. A prolific bearer and popular for market and shipping."
