I have some Marketmore Cucumbers growing. One is about 7 inches long and looks like it is ready to be picked it is getting a bit plump around the middle. The blossom end of the cuke is like a little curled tail, like on a pig. I am wondering does this mean that the cuke needs to grow more or should I go ahead and pick it? The others are shorter and fatter around 5 in or so and. getting fat instead of long the are green with some paler green stripes. Should I pick them? I have grown Marketmore other years and they were long and straight. This year they are mostly short and fat.
Thank you

Fruit and vegetables often grow in different shapes.

This will not effect the taste.
