anybody any ideas on how large these cucumbers should grow to be at their best
i also have some spanish green ones with prickly skin.. same question please




The fruit in your picture does not look like a cucumber to me, the spanish green ones probably are. 5 inches long should be the best size.

It looks like what is sold here as Lemon Cucumber, actually an edible gourd. Cricket ball to softball size is usually best.

I just had a thought: do you folks play softball over there?

I am not familiar with this one, and haven't played softball for years. LOL.
