This cucumber is known as a slicer but it also made GREAT crunchy sweet pickles last year, when I had a bumper crop.
Note that although it is supposed to be powdery mildew resistant, gardeners in cool, damp area (i.e. coastal CA) may have trouble when the weather is foggy. But that is the case with any variety.

What a tasty & nice looking cuke this is. I planted 3 seeds in 2 mounds, and every single seed took root within 7 days. Very pleased with the way I was able to train the seedlings to grow away from one-another, and maximize the area. As of now the leaves are compact with the vine saving more room for the tomatoes and okra. The cukes are dark green, crisp, and it would be a good pickle too! I will like to see how it produces down the road, but as for now it is giving me more, and more cukes each harvest!

No matter how many other cucumbers I try, this is my old standby. Always reliable harvest and excellent cucumbers. Heavy producer of sweet juicy cucumbers even when the other varieties have died down.

Another in a long series of Marketmore releases from Cornell Univeristy. Added Resistance: downy mildew, powdery mildew, scab, cucumber mosaic virus. That appears to be the major difference from the original Marketmore. Marketmore 80, 82, 85, 86, 87, 88, 92, and 97 have also been introduced, each with an additional disease resistance or freedom from bitterness but I have not tried them.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Palm Coast, Florida
Bayville, New Jersey
Buffalo, New York
Elba, New York
Thomasville, North Carolina
Grand Mound, Washington
