One or two corncumbers appear every year. There is another forming now.

Big difference. There is a picture of the corncumber, but none of Jackelopes. Seeing is believing?

Re: Corncumber

http://eenge.notlong.com 7 July 2007 Cuccumbers Producing.

The cuccumbers are on a trellis to contain spreading. There are two types being grown National Pickling and Cross Country. I have found National Pickling is a suitable cultivar in my Zone 5.

Last year Downy Mildew destroyed my cuccumbers just as they started to produce in quantity. There is no sign of the mildew this year to date.

I notice one more corncumber was produced.

http://ahvoh.notlong.com/ 9 July 2007 More cucumbers from the home garden.

These few vines produce many cucumbers, about 15 per day. There are six hills total about 15 plant in both beds. National Pickling and Country Cross are the types. They are good eating and pickling cucumbers.

They look delicious! I was excited to see that I actually have baby cucumbers setting on my lemon cucumber vine. Our harvest will be later. Interesting given your zone, but I do believe that typically you have hotter days and warmer nights during the summer than we do. I wish I had the room to let mine spread! This year I am using small trellises and the plants seem happier than in previous years.

I use concrete reinforcing mesh 8 feet by 4 feet for the trellis. My view is the cucumbers do well using the trellis. I put a square foot board along the trellis between the plants to make picking from the inside easier. The plants must run a bit before climbing so I put the two trellis's about three feet apart.

http://teeyu.notlong.com 11 July 2007 Prolific producers. The Country Cross is producing slightly more than the National Picking at this time.

You used a vegiform for that, right?

Have you ever used any of the other ones: faces perhaps? Seems silly but fun.

Cheers.

Absolutely amazing. My cucumbers are still just flowering. I am trying Armenian cucumbers this year, which aren't true cucumbers, but sure look tasty. I think your warm nights make a lot of difference. When did you set these out?

I started the cucumbers in 5 inch pots on 1 April indoors. The plants were put in the garden on 1 June. This procedure gives the plants a good start.

For the second crop I started some in pots on 1 June and put them in the garden on 5 July. They are running now, and will produce about the time the main crop is finished.
