Cucino Cucumbers

Beth11's picture

Here's a picture of the Cucino cucumbers in a deluxe.  Growing slowly but looking OK.  I'm not happy with the crispy lower leaves.  Flora nutes, currently using Peats recipe for bloom, EC at 1.9, pH 6.0.  Started Jan 29, 2009, so they are 45 days old.  Can't seem to get my camera to take a clear picture of the baby cuc!

AG cucs continue to grow. 

AG cucs continue to grow.  They do lose their lower leaves but grow new ones back!  Vines are at 22 inches with 15 baby cucs.  Hope they mature!  I really like this variety.  It will make it into a pot on my patio this year.

Beth - aha! That would do it! They do love to hide, don't they? 

Looks delicious! Yes, definitely, picking that should fatten up the next up-vine!

Hi Gisette,   Look what I

Hi Gisette,

  Look what I found!  It's getting eaten tomorrow, don't care if it should be bigger (they only get 4-5" long).  Maybe that will cause the other 15 or so cucs to fatten up!

Hi All,

  The cucino in with the swiss chard is older.  I started it on 12/15, I think and it went into the box around 12/25.  It's in the back of the box - I need to drag it out and check on the progress.  It has lots of cucs, but they aren't getting bigger.  I snipped out the growing point to see if that would help.

Beth
