I have a raised bed garden. I’ve noticed white/yellow scaley areas on a few of the leaves. What might this be?
I have heard that after you peel a cucumber or that when you handle them, like when slicing, they become bitter. The more you handle them, the more bitter they become. Is this true?
My cucumbers are not turning green; they are staying white, then yellow. You mentioned a yellow cucumber may have a deficiency.
I moved my cucumbers to a different part of the garden this year as part of my 3 years rotation and they are dying too soon. Once the plant vines were about 2 to 3 feet long, the leaves started to get yellow spots and drying out. Even with enough watering. At one point it was only at the base of the plant for the longest time and now it’s making its way to the flower tip of the 8 to 9 foot vines. There is about 3 feet of nice green vine left for each plant, but I feel they will soon die too. Can I savage what I have left? I know there is a disease like this. Please help! I have harvested about 65 to 75 cucumbers so far. The ones now on the vines are yellowing prematurely too fast. Not even big enough for harvest. I am growing “Burpless” this year instead of Marketmores. I never had this problem with Marketmores.
We have always had success in planting cucumbers in our garden, harvesting several a day in the summer. We live in NJ. However, this year our cucumbers are not growing. We have tons of yellow flowers, the leaves look healthy, but the only cucumbers we are getting are small (pickle size) and already yellow and bitter. It has been abnormally hot here this past month; however, we do have an in-ground sprinkler system that waters the garden every other day. Any idea what is happening?
How do you know if your cucumber plant has a virus or it’s just overwatered? It is the only plant in the garden that is yellow and all of the cucumbers are half developed and yellow. When picked and cut open, they seem almost gassy. A lot of the vines look to be dead, but at the end have green growth starting. What could it be?
We grew 2 varieties of cukes last summer and had a huge harvest. This year we had many volunteers come up. I put up trellises and let them grow. They have spade-shaped leaves and vigorous vines and are now producing white flowers- but no sign of any fruit. Is it possible that an infertile hybrid was created?
