Research Report: High tunnel cucumber variety trial, 2010

In 2010, we evaluated fourteen varieties of cucumbers in a replicated trial in an unheated high tunnel at the NH Agricultural Experiment Station in Durham, NH. Cultivars belonged to four types: Asian, pickling, slicing, and beit-alpha. We observed significant differences in yields between varieties (and types). We also found that some varieties were much more susceptible to both mites and powdery mildew than other varieties.
