Marketmore 76 remains the most widely-planted organic slicer in the US! Dark green fruits stay green and mild-tasting even under heat stress, while multiple disease resistances keep plants vigorous and highly productive across a long picking season. Showed good resistance to Anthracnose in seed trials. Thats the disease that causes your cucumbers leaves to brown and turn webbed in splotches. This kind of disease resistance is important here in South Florida because our climate is perfect for mildews, fungus’ and bacterias to thrive. Pests also act as vectors for plant diseases so its best to keep your plants healthy, pest free and well trellised for long term success. Marketmore 76 is a “slicer” cucumber which means it has thin skin and more water content than a pickler.
