This was ought as a mini cucumber. Is it edible and how big should the fruit be? Size of a tennis ball at present




Id say its about the right size. I tried this one a couple of years ago. Will be interested to see what you think of it. Don’t leave it any longer, harvest it now! Enjoy!

Thanks cottage Karen. Do I just slice it and eat like a cucumber or should it be peeled or cooked?

I think you eat as a normal cucumber. I grew a similar one once, it was called an apple cucumber, it ran along the ground though like a ridge cucumber, tasted quite nice.

Yes, just a normal cuc.
