Harvesting cucumbers.

This should be simple – no mystery what is the cucumber and need to harvest.
But when I lost the seed package where is mention the dimension, I am admiring and meditating daily what is the story of my cucumbers?

If I wait too long, the skins get thicker and the seed cavities enlarge at the expense of the flesh of the cucumber. what is too mature?before they turn yellow/lighter!!. The green cucumber “yellow” -ed is more bitter, and have thicker peels.

So, when? : while the skins are tender. When is green. 8-10 days the fruit is visible. And big but not too big- to define.

Cucumber stems are tough so I harvest by cutting (scissor), not pulling from the vines, to avoid damaging the vines.

 

Pictures will come this evening 🙂
