Marketmore 76 Cucumber Seeds  (63 days)

Marketmore 76 cucumber seeds were introduced by Dr. Henry Munger at Cornell University and released in 1976.   Dr. Munger just passed (8/2010).  He will be sorely missed, but many of his creations will live on feeding the world.

Marketmore 76 is a good yielding mid season slicing cucumber for the home gardener. 8-9" very dark green when mature.  Nice flavor, smooth, straight and perfect for salads.  Marketmore 76 vines bear over a longer period than most. 

Marketmore 76 cucumbers are known as slicing cucumbers. They grow straight and have smooth, dark green skin. Handling them, you’ll feel a few cucumber “spines” but there are few and they easily rubbed off.  

Marketmore 76 cucumbers are prolific. Throughout the summer, they provide steady growth and cucumber output.

Disease Tolerance: Cucumber Mosaic Virus, Downy Mildew, Powdery Mildew, Scab

Planting Tips for Heirloom Cucumber:

Soak seeds overnight before planting either individually in rows or hills of 3-6 seeds each.  Tighter spacing and higher yields can be achieved through trellising the plants on fences or poles.  Continually harvesting will keep the plant producing new fruits.

  • Heirloom cucumbers do not like acidic soil! 
  • Frost tender.  Heirloom cucumbers love warm weather.
  • To get an earlier heirloom cucumber crop start indoors 3-4 weeks before last frost.
  • Heirloom cucumbers are thirsty!  Never let them go dry.  Heirloom cucumbers are over 95 % water.  
  • Fertilize heirloom cucumbers with manures BEFORE planting.
  • Cucumber beetles are "supposed" to dislike marigolds or wood ashes sprinkled at the base of  cucumber vines.

Seeding Rate for Heirloom Cucumber:

35,000-40,000 plants/acre, 3-4 lb./acre

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.

    I have grown Marketmore Cucumbers for several years. During my many years of gardening, I have tried a variety of cucumber types and Marketmore 76 is the one that keeps producing cukes throughout the growing season.
