Q.Cucumber pest/disease

Zone Midvaal South Africa | Benyzk added on March 3, 2018 | Answered

My whole cucumber crop is ruined. All cucumbers have a hole and they start rotting. The vine itself is healthy and the cucumbers are mostly looking good, except every single one has a hole. Please see the attached pics.

I am inclined to believe that this is a fungal infection, likely brought on by a pest. The best thing I could recommend is reconditioning your soil with dolomitic lime, and wettable sulfur during the off season. This will kill most infections within the soil, as well as correct very common cucumber deficiencies.
