After millennia of indigenous co-adaptation, collaborations at Cornell inspired the brilliance of many delectably disease-resistant cucumbers brilliantly adapted for short seasons. Organic Marketmore 76 Cucumber is the consummate slicer, crunchy and abundant even in less than ideal conditions. Multiple disease resistances surround you with abundance even into the late season. In 2013 we direct-seeded Marketmore 76 in early June and were still eating delicious Marketmore’s in early October, from the same planting!
