Bacterial Wilt

Anonymous added on August 10, 2011 | Answered

From the looks of our cucumber plants and doing some searching online, we may have bacterial wilt. My question is, are the cucumbers that we get off the plants still good to eat? Could they make us sick? We are still getting some nice looking ones, but not sure if they are to be consumed or not. This is our very first attempt at doing a garden and we are not knowlegable on the subject.

Yes, they are still good to eat. The wilt will not hurt people if the cucumber fruit is eaten.
