Marketmore 76 Cucumber
Marketmore 76 Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) We have grown this variety for a few years now and have been extremely impressed with its abundance of fruit and disease resistance. Introduced at Cornell University in 1968 by Dr. Henry Munger. A standard high yielding open pollinated cucumber, great for eating fresh and slicing. Produces dark green 8-9” fruit with superb flavour. Vines are vigorous throughout the growing season.
