8-9 x 2.25-2.5 in. fruit, dark green, even in hot weather, sweet mild flavor, tapers at both ends, blocky, white spines, and no stippling.
Resistant to scab, cucumber mosaic virus, powdery mildew, downy mildew, alternaria leaf spot and anthracnose.
Increased resistance to cucumber beetles. (We did note this in our 2013 cucumber trials as there were lots of cuke beetles and they seemed to leave Marketmore 80 alone.)
I have a terrible time with cucumber beetles, so I decided to give these a try. I planted late to try to avoid the beetles. I have seen a few, however, not on these plants. The vines seem very hardy so far. We will wait and see. Overall happy right now.
