"Marketmore 76" is easy to grow and high yielding! 8-9” dark green fruits remain green and crisp even under heat stress. Multiple disease resistances make it a vigorous producer all season long.
When and Where to Plant: Tender Annual. Direct sow seeds after danger of frost has passed and soil has warmed. Transplants are recommended and can be started 4-6 weeks before planting date. Optimal soil temp for germination is 75-85°F. Seed will not germinate in soils below 50°F. Plant outside one week after frost date to ensure soil is warm enough. Plastic mulch and row cover allow for earlier planting dates. Pick cukes daily. Plants will slow production if over grown fruits persist on vines.
