70 days — An improved Poinsett-type cucumber that added scab resistance to the line. Although it exhibits resistance to many common diseases (anthracnose, angular leaf spot, downy mildew, powdery mildew), it is not recommended for New York growers as it is susceptible to cucumber mosaic virus (spinach blight).
This variety was a cooperative release by Dr. Henry M. Munger
of Cornell and Clemson VA/AES in 1976. Poinsett 76 is an excellent slicing type that averages 8½ inches long by 2½ inches in diameter when mature. The flesh is crisp, white and tender. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 25 to 30 seeds.
