Marketmore 76 is the most widely-planted open-pollinated slicing cucumber in the US. The 8-9” dark green fruits stay green and mild-tasting even under heat stress. Multiple disease resistances keep plants vigorous and highly productive across a long picking season. Shows good resistance to Angular Leaf Spot and Anthracnose. Days to maturity: 65
Plant cucumbers at a 2' x 4' spacing. Large spacings increase air circulation, which in turn reduces disease pressure.
Black plastic mulch can be used to control weeds, increase yields, and to reach harvest size earlier.
Watering is very important in successfully growing cucumbers. The key time to water is from the time the fruit is beginning to form until it is half-grown. A lot of water near harvest time will reduce the sugar content and cause the fruit to have hollow centers.
Cucumbers need to be rotated in the garden to reduce soilborne diseases like fusarium wilt.
