(Cucumis sativus) Popular open-pollinated variety produces an abundance of 6-8" long slicing cucumbers. Excellent flavor and reliable performance have made Marketmore 76 the standard for slicing cucumbers. Plants show excellent resistance to scab and intermediate resistance to mildews and cucumber mosaic virus. 58 days to harvest. 25 seeds per packet.
CULTURE: Direct sow seeds in spring after danger of frost has passed. Seeds should be sown 2-3 per hill with hills spaced at least 3' in all directions. Alternatively, seeds may be sown along a trellis with 12-24" final spacing between plants. Under ideal conditions, germination will occur in 3-10 days. Harvesting regularly promotes yield.
Not too much to report - only that each seed germinated and they are on their second set of leaves. It's good to hear from Lorna's review that they adapt to climbing. Looking forward to healthy, productive plants.
They were extremely productive. I raise mine on a slanted fence which keeps most off the ground. They adapted just fine to being trained to climb the fence.
