    Here is an article about why cucumbers turn yellow. They may be overripe. Be sure to harvest before they begin to turn yellow. Disease or overwatering also can cause yellow fruit. I also am including a link to an article about misshapen fruit.

    Hope this helps!

    This looks like over-fertilization, but there are several more causes, too. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/cucumber/deformed-cucumbers.htm
