growing round cumbers for first time, how big before picking and when


On plant Cucumis sativus

I'd guess this must be the melon cucumber or crystal apple. Pick them when they are about the size of a large hen's egg, before they start to turn yellowish. Like ordinary cucumbers they will grow quite large if left but are at their best when small.
