what variety of cucumber is this?
I think I got the wrong seeds when ordering muncher pickling cukes. These are fuzzy blobs with no spikes. Does anyone know what variety they are and how to tell when they can be harvested?

That is certainly not what you purchased. Cucumbers can cross with a number of other species in its genus, so my guess is that they had an accidental outcrossing when cultivating their pure breed.
That is bad news for them, since who knows how many thousands of seeds are ruined. I would recommend contacting them with this information and these photos.
As for saying what that is... As mentioned, cukes can cross with many things, so this would be a total guessing game. Whatever it turns out to be will be edible, more than likely. Just pick them at different intervals to determine ripeness. Let one get very mature and compare it to the rest throughout time.
