Sorry - been grannying today with little 2 year old which has been great fun in the veggie garden at home with his little wheelbarrow and tool set. Start them young!
Yes - Marketmore seems to be a popular variety and you seem to be tolerating the pips. Cucumbers in Italy seem to have rather tough skins too and need peeling. Maybe most of them are grown outdoors too. I expect they still beat the shop bought ones.
Will seek out La Diva, Pam.
Will keep looking for other varieties. What would happen if I grew a greenhouse variety in the garden I wonder? Might be an interesting experiment. Anyone tried it?
