Disease Resistance in Cucumbers
I love growing cucumbers in my coastal MA, raised bed garden each year. I love looking at them. I love eating them. Although I choose the most disease resistant varieties, as described in the catalogs, I still have the same sad experience each growing season. I have have a burst of healthy growth, a wonderful early crop of slicers, and then disease sets in. Wilt, Mosaic, Mildew, etc. Catalog recommendations may be great but I would like to solicit local knowledge about what does best in SE MA. What varieties have you found to be successful over a long season here in MA? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated before I put out my seed orders for the upcoming growing season.
