I wish there was but I don't think there is any resistance available for bacterial wilt in cucumbers.

  We are growing Asian burpless cucumbers in a high tunnel.  Yields have been great but are having what I guess is bacterial wilt. At least the plants are wilting and are gone in a couple of days. Are there any burpless cucumbers that are resistant to bacterial wilt?  I have sprayed but the little buggers ( cucumber beetles ) are tough to get.     

  Thanks,  Tom Circle
