Cucumber Pickings.



My hybrid telegraph cucumber/gherkin plants are now providing rather a lot of their mixed race fruit. I will not however be saving any seed from them. The advantages and looks of the parent plants' fruit are lost in this illicit first generation cross. I suspect that the bulk of today's picking will be converted into chutney. At least that will mean that I will not have to look at their rough skin and be reminded of their stunted growth.
