What are the pros? Works well in dryer conditions
What are the cons? Covered in mildew fast
My Marketmore 76 cucumber crop was wiped out last year by mosaic disease (even though they're described as 'mosaic-tolerant'), so I decided to try the Straight Eight cucumber this year. Unfortunately they are being inundated with mold from some early heavy rains. And even though we've been dry for quite some time now (and spraying soda/water and milk/water to prevent/get rid of), nothing is working. The cucumbers have just started producing and the taste is good but they're dry compared to the Marketmore 76 and many were deformed. I think I'm going to go back to the MM 76.
