I have had about 9 cucumbers off this plant so far and it’s still producing loads more but I have one very curious fruit and I’ve never seen this before could it be fasication or just luck ? Has anyone else ever seen this before?

It looks like it is trying to be a pepper. I went looking to see to which family each belongs but they are not the same, however I thought you would enjoy these tips for using your cucumbers. http://thespanian.wordpress.com/2009/12/03/facts-you-may-not-know-about-cucumber/
