Looking for the Most hearty and successful types of cucumbers in my area. Have mostly grow Striaght eights over the years with great success. Looking for other types as successful.

RE: cucumbers in SWVA

Grew Cukes in the New River Valley for 28 years. Mostly slicers because that is what I like. China Long. Straight Eight, Straight Nine, Poinsett, Marketmore, Ashley. All of them did well, but Straight Nine was my favorite. Very similar to Straight Eight but a shade larger. Down here I am experimenting with some of the hybrids, but other than some disease resistance, no appreciable advantage.
