61 days to maturity. Developed and released in 1976 by Dr. Henry Munger of Cornell University. Marketmore 80 is bitter-free with multiple disease resistance, uniform shape and size (8 to 9" long, 2-1/2" diameter), with a dark green skin, and is the earliest cucumber in the popular Marketmore series. Because cucumber beetles are less attracted to bitter-free varieties, there is also less chance of disease transmission. Regardless of the cucumber variety grown, we suggest inter-planting several plants of vegetable amaranth (which self-sow each year), attracting cucumber beetles away from most varieties of cucumber. Marketmore 80 is one of our most dependable varieties, and is very easy to grow. (Cucumis sativus)
