How do you tell when a cucumber is ready for picking.



I prefer to eat them when they are smallish - say about 6 - 8 inches long. Try one and see what it tastes like.

If you cuecumbers are :- a good gauge is a small shop brought size and over.

Don't let the skin of the cuke get dull, though--that means that the seeds are maturing, and it is likely to be bitter
