Yellow Cucumbers


Anonymous added on June 8, 2015 | Answered

Never had a garden before. I have a small one now. In the beginning, I was growing green cucumbers. Now all that is growing are yellow ones. It's been very hot here the last month or so. Is it the heat? Watering tips?? Thanks.

A yellow cucumber can also be the result of a virus, too much water, or a nutrient imbalance. In some instances, yellow cucumbers are derived from planting a yellow-fleshed cultivar, such as the lemon cucumber, which is a small, lemon-shaped, pale yellow variety. This article (at the bottom) will give some reasons why they are yellow:
