How far will cucumber plants stretch ?

I have 3 cucs in my back porch, two of them I stopped growing at roof height. But I've let the 3rd one to continue growing and am training up the slight slope of the roof timbers.
Is this a good idea ? How far d'you reckon it'll grow ? The roof timbers are 10 ft long.



They grow to at least 15 feet. If you have the space, not a problem.

Mind you don't bang your head on the cucumbers then!

Good luck with picking them up there!

That's great news, I wish I hadn't stopped the other 2 plants at roof height. Will let you know how the "unstopped " one goes on.
