Sumter Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) A variety bred by W. C. Barnes of the Clemson Agricultural Experiment Station in the early 1970’s. 'Sumter' shows excellent resistance to mildew, leaf spot, anthracnose, scab, and cucumber mosaic virus. It has become the go-to cucumber and is well-adapted in many growing regions of North America. Fruits are a medium-green colour with tiny white spines and are blocky and slightly tapered at the end. An excellent choice as both a home or market garden variety.
