61 days. [Developed and released in 1976 by Dr. Henry Munger of Cornell University.] â€˜Marketmore 80â€™ is bitter-free with multiple disease resistance, uniform shape and size (8 to 9â€ long, 2-1/2â€ diameter), with a dark green skin, and is the earliest cucumber in the popular â€˜Marketmoreâ€™ 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. â€˜Marketmore 80â€™ is resistant to six diseases (scab, CMV, PM, DM, ALS and AN). This is one of our most dependable varieties, and is very easy to grow.
