    It seems the corn may be too close to the cuccumbers, and possibly the pollen got mixed.

    me thinks thou Durgan hast played with photoshop!!

    strange if a hybrid can be made between these two as the corn is a monocot and the cucumber is a dicot. a little too far apart on the phylogenetic tree?

    Certainly the photograph was not touched.. It is still on the vine, waiting for visitors. You must admit it is rather attractive.

    Was it some kind of net wrapped around for a few days? Looks cool!

    Actually it is a very heavy plastic, split in half mold, that has over 30 locking pins to withstand the pressure. I took a shortcut once and used plastic ties and they simply snapped. The growing pressure is enormous. The one this year is well formed. I usually offer it to the unsuspecting types. It makes a good conversation subject for awhile, similiar to growing upsidedown tomatoes. It give a gentle, harmless laugh.

    Strongly constructed mold for making corncumbers.
