If your cucumber is shaped funny or looks lopsided, it is probably a pollination problem.
This is my first ‘National Pickling’ cucumber of the season, and it was not completely pollinated. All the seeds are not developing, so it is not filling out into the perfect cylinder that we see at the grocery stores.
Hopefully the bees have found this plant by now, and the rest should look normal.
If problems still persist for you, or if you don’t have many bees in your area, you can follow the hand-pollination process found in my squash post.
The funny-looking cucumber is still edible though, and is destined for a salad. 🙂
Funny as it looks, it is a cukey cutey!!!! 😉
Thanks! I am hoping to make lots of homemade pickles!
