How does one know when a cucumber and a pepper are ready to pick ?



I pick cucumbers when they're about 8 inches or smaller - the size of an average pickle. The bigger ones don't taste as good. What kind of peppers are you growing? I'm growing red bells - those are easy to tell.

Thank you.
I have a green and a red pepper. It's the green one I'm not sure of.

Green ones are tricky. You have to use your hands. When they are supple and about the right size, you just know it's time to harvest.
