Cucumber, Poinsett 76 (Organic)

Cucumis sativus. Slicing. 60-70 days.

There’s no need for hybrid cucumbers with wonderful varieties like this around! Dark green skinned, 7-8″ long fruit are juicy, crunchy, and sweet. The yield is remarkable and we highly recommend it for organic farm production or for anyone who wants boxes full of classic slicing cukes. An excellent variety from Dr. Henry M. Munger, one of the great public plant breeders of the 20th century. It was cooperatively released in 1976 by the Clemson, Virginia, Agriculture Experiment Station and Cornell. Originally selected to be resistant to anthracnose, angular leaf spot, downy mildew, powdery mildew, spider mites and scab. We thank Southern Exposure Seed Exchange for bringing this variety to our attention.

Sow indoors in 2” pots with good potting soil May to mid June. Two weeks after sprouting, transplant to 2′ spacing in 6′ rows. May also be direct sown when soil is warm. Young cucumber plants benefit from floating row cover to protect them from insects and frost.

Seed Saving

To save seed, scoop out seeds when the fruit is bloated like a yellow blimp. Leave in bucket and allow to ferment for a few days. Rinse and let seeds dry. Winnow to clean further if needed. Isolate from other varieties of the same species by at least ½ mile.
