Loving harvesting these, but running out of family and friends to offload them to! Still got tonnes on the plants and lots of flowers too! A good year for cucumbers!

    Morning lovely folks.  It's my second year with my dream greenhouse Lyn. Thanks Kef. Great idea! Not tried that before.

    Any ideas what to do with this? It's a cucumber-apple-lemon! Size of a tennis ball.  Thought I'd give growing it a go for a bit of fun. No idea what it's going to taste like! It says 'good for pickles' on the label... I'll report back following consumption!

    Delicious!  Tastes like what it's called! texture of an apple, zesty like a lemon, and refreshing like a cucumber. Brilliant! Hope I get some more growing!

    Here's the label, and a photo of the vine. It's pretty rampant! Forgot to say, it had to be peeled before eaten.
