how do u know when a cuecumber is ready to pick?
and why does the flower on a cuecumber die off then the cumber looks like its another brantch is this normal ?



I pick mine when they've filled out a bit otherwise they are too dry, but picking a small juicy one will beat anything you can buy!, the flower naturally dies off before the fruit is ripe

Don't leave the cucumber until it starts to turn yellow otherwise it will be past its best. Just experiment a little with your picking until you find the taste which best suits you. After all gherkins are just tiny cucumbers picked when they are really tiny.
