Looking for a delicious, dark green cucumber with a sweet mild flavor? Look no further than the Marketmore 76 Cucumber. This iconic variety was developed by Dr. Henry Munger at Cornell University in 1968 and quickly set the standard for cucumbers in the USA. The Marketmore 76 Cucumber is sure to become your new favorite! 8-9" fruit.

Plant seeds directly in the garden in the spring after the danger of frost has passed, roughly 1-2 weeks after the average last frost date and when daytime temps are near 70°F. Sow 5-6 seeds per hill and thin to 2-3 plants. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-80 degrees. For transplants, start seed indoors 3-4 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Transplant to the garden 2-3 weeks after your average last frost date. Harvest when small & pick daily. Mature cucumbers on the vine slow production of new fruit.
