A very crisp cucumber that is well-suited for pickles. Also, it is good to eat fresh.

New hybrid pickling cultivar. "From the Harris Moran breeding program comes Eclipse, a top performer with moderate resistance to Powdery Mildew, Downy Mildew, and CMV; and resistance to Scab, ALS, and Anthracnose. This newcomer yields blocky to slightly tapered, dark green fruit. The fruit sets well for machine harvest and continues to set well for extended hand harvest."
