Resistant to scab, cucumber-mosaic virus, and mildews, Marketmore 76 is a favorite slicing cucumber of growers in the Northeast. They need good soil and lots of space, but when well trellised, they can be grown in large containers. Cucumbers are heavy drinkers, but water is best applied at the base of the plant early in the day — avoid getting the leaves wet to reduce the chance of diseases.

Plants in quart pots.
