Type of Cucumber??

Post  tiffanybrenner on 8/13/2014, 3:44 pm

I have this planted in my SFG. The label said "Bushy Cucumber", but I'm wondering if its mislabeled OR if its just not growing well. It seems more vine-like, and the first Cucumber has turned more and more yellow. It could just not be growing well, but thought I'd post a pic and see what you think?

Bushy cucumber still will have vines of 4 to 5 feet in length You need to feed it. Either top dress with compost or use a general balanced liquid fertilizer per the label directions or half strength.

I was wondering if it was possibly a lemon cucumber, but you said it was not, and lemon cucumbers aren't "bushy," so probably it's just over-ripe? Not sure why you left it on the vine so long.

It may be a poorly pollinated cucumber that has turned yellow.

I have some pickling cucumbers. After a big rain storm I noticed that instead if growing long they were like your picture yellow and round. Did you have alot of rain?

Thanks for the insight. I'll try feeding it.

(left it on the vine so long because I didn't feel like it ever looked ripe. Probably not pollinated)

Love this forum!
