I planted lemon cucumbers and they are growing-they are little ball shaped things. My question is-when are they ripe?
Do i pick them when they are green before they turn yellow?
These are a new one on me!!!!
About the size of a golfball or just a touch bigger is my favorite size.When they turn all the way yellow,they're overmature. I've grown these several times and they are a big favorite here. You don't even have to peel them.
Kenny's the cuke-eater in this family and he says pick 'em right as they turn yellow ~ a little green still on them is fine. Actually, I hate cukes unless they're pickled in a nice dill brine, but I did like the Lemon cukes raw in a salad. :)!!
