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 Ruth Garcia
