Cucumber - Marketmore 76 - Cucumis sativus

Tender Annual Marketmore 76 strain produces 8"-9" long fruits varying in diameter from 2"-2 _". Dark green even in hot weather with a sweet mild flavor. The fruit is blocky but tapers at both ends, covered in white spines with no stippling. Good for both home gardens or market in cool climate areas. Developed by Dr. Munger of Cornell University.
