Re: Favorite Cucumbers

karstopography track down a stem or two of the cucumber you like and pollinate the flowers, tagging them so you know which ones you have pollinated. If only one plant, you will be selfing, which may or may not take, but worth trying, even a poor set of seed should enable you to harvest enough seed ...

Re: Favorite Cucumbers

Marsha, what I am growing is a different style of cucumber to the burpless ones that you have shown above. Those sizes mentioned are the normal size for those varieties so no, they aren't tough at all. The Sikkims go a russet red when mature and become a bit bitter, the Giant White Russian go a yell...

Re: Favorite Cucumbers

Thank you karstopography , useful information, much appreciated. The Sikkims that I grew last season pushed 1.75 lb if I missed them in what was an ordinary season for us after the fires.

Re: Favorite Cucumbers

A question for those who trellis cucumbers, have never done it before myself and am considering doing it this year, just wondering how the plants would cope with fruit of upto 2lb hanging from the vines? Would it be best to support them somehow or should they be OK just hanging.

Re: Dawn's Garden 2020

Look after them Dawn, they are fabulous. Maybe a bit later in the season than some but definitely worth the effort of growing them :o 20200524_130347.jpg One of the varieties that I was excited about, and lost. This is the original seed starting pot. I potted up the seedings and apparently just left...
