Product Description

DAYS TO HARVEST
55-58

SOWING
Sow when soil is at least 65 degrees. Seeds will germinate the quickest (~7 days) at 80 degrees. Sow indoor in large-celled trays or outdoors once the soil has warmed.

LIGHT PREFERENCE
Full sun

SOIL REQUIREMENTS
The more compost the better! We transplant our seedlings directly into a hole filled with finished compost. Spraying with compost tea at transplant time is recommended.

PLANT HEIGHT
Marketmore 76 can be left to spread over your beds or trellised depending on your space and preference.

PLANT SPACING
2-3 feet apart in spreading. 1 foot if trellising.

HARDINESS ZONES
Warm weather crop. Cucumbers will benefit from row cover before flowering stage to stay warm and to keep cucumber beetles off the plants. Be sure to remove row cover upon flowering so outside insects can assist in pollination. Mulching around the base of the plants will also keep the soil temperature more constant and create a barrier for female cucumber beetles trying to lay their eggs in the soil.

HARVEST
Harvest when fruits are no longer than 8-9″.

COMPANION PLANTING
Dill, tansy, catnip, yarrow, castor bean, wormwood, nasturtium, mints, and marigold will help to deter beetles.

DISEASE RESISTANCE
This variety is resistant to scab and tolerant of Mosaic Virus, Downy Mildew, and Powdery Mildew.
