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. Access the full report for more details.
