History: The story of ‘Marketmore 76’ is a testament to the dedication of the agricultural community to enhance quality and yield. This variety traces its roots back to Cornell University in 1968 when Dr. Henry Munger, a renowned plant breeder, introduced it to the world. Since its inception, Marketmore 76 has not only found a place in gardens globally but also in the hearts of those who have cherished it for generations. Passed down through the family lineage, it's much more than just a plant; it symbolizes legacy, tradition, and a shared passion for gardening.

Uses: The 'Marketmore 76' cucumber has graced countless meals with its fresh, satisfyingly crisp flavor. But beyond just the taste, it's the texture that has garnered acclaim — a crunchiness that endures even after cooking or pickling. The long, slender fruits, encased in a dark green skin, are not just ideal for fresh consumption but are also perfect for pickling, ensuring they're a regular in many households. Moreover, their significant size ensures that a little goes a long way, be it in salads, sandwiches, or even as standalone snacks. With an array of nutrients, they're not just a treat for the taste buds but also a boost for health.

Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: Cultivating 'Marketmore 76' is a joy, primarily due to its resilient nature. The plant grows tall, often reaching up to 8-9 feet, and thrives best under full sunlight. While it prefers well-drained soil, it's also notably resistant to most common cucumber diseases, ensuring a hassle-free gardening experience. Direct seeding is recommended post the last frost, with seeds being sown around an inch deep. Given its vining nature, it's beneficial to provide a trellis or some form of support for optimal growth. Regular watering and occasional fertilization ensure a consistent, high yield, which means abundant, crunchy cucumbers all through the season. Whether you're an experienced gardener or just starting out, 'Marketmore 76' is an assured way to a fruitful and rewarding harvest.
