"Cucumis Marketmore 76 (USDA Organic) Cucumber, Cucumis sativus 'Marketmore 76', is a slicing cucumber that has 8-9"" long, slender, dark green fruits that maintain their uniform color, even under weather stress. Marketmore 76 begins bearing late, but picks for a relatively long time. It remains dark green even in hot weather, has a sweet mild flavor, tapers at both ends, blocky, white spines, and no stippling. Good for both home gardens or market in cool climate areas. Cucumbers originate from India where they have been cultivated for over three thousand years. The cucumber is a quick growing subtropical vine. In fact, many varieties of cucumbers are ready to harvest after only fifty days. They can be trellised if desired. A bit of afternoon shade is helpful in very hot summer-areas. Supply abundant moisture and continue to harvest fruit, even if misshapen, to keep vines productive."
