Cucumber – Marketmore 76



Heirloom! THE classic slicer cucumber. Marketmore Cucumber produces an abundance of dark-green, shiny, 8-9” fruits all summer until first frost. AND it maintains a mild flavor even under stress.  A disease resistant workhorse and a must-grow for any cucumber enthusiast.  The original Marketmore Cucumber was developed at Cornell University in 1968 by Dr. Henry Munger and hailed as a breeding breakthrough for cucumbers. For 30 years, Dr. Munger perfected Marketmore along with many other incredible vegetable varieties. In 1976, he released this vigorous strain of Marketmore which remains a favorite of gardeners and farmers alike!
