I found this video which may solve my cucumber plants woes where they quick producing early or not produce enough. Has anyone tried Party time, Early Prince and china jade?

I haven't grown any of those varieties, but have grown, and am growing the Beit Alpha Cucumber which is an heirloom, open-pollinated cucumber variety that is parthenocarpic. It is a great producer as well.

Fortunately we don't get those temps here very often.  It has been in the high 80's to low 90's, with humidity in the same range.  Today is thunderstorms with temps in the low 80's, so very mild.

Beit Alpha is originally from Israel.  So very hot and dry.  It is a fantastic cuke.

I grow Beit Alpha and Muncher. I didn't know BA was parthenocarpic! It's 110*F and dry, and will be in the 100s for days. The 3rd variety I like is Armenian cucumber but it is a different species, like a melon. It can take a beating from spider mites, white flies and heat and still taste good. Unfortunately, I was too late to buy starts this year. Sad https://www.rareseeds.com/cucumber-armenian-yard-long

I'm growing some of these Beit Alpha cucumber transplants for the fall. right now we're 108 F with heat index 114 and humid. This burns the leaves. I'm will be growing these under shade cloth till the heat wave stop. My peppers are growing under shade cloth. some are producing too. They can't take this high intensity light and heat, but survive well under 30-40% shade cloth. My sweet basil leaves are burning some in full light, but will recover when the temp break.  the other types of basil, thyme, oregano are doing fine.
