    4 July 2007. The corncumber was picked, lightly skinned, sliced, put in vinegar, and eaten for lunch. It tasted like a National Pickling cuccumber, but had the shape and size of a perfect cob of corn, before the skin was removed.

    http://eenge.notlong.com 7 July 2007 Cuccumbers Producing.

    The cuccumbers are on a trellis to contain spreading. There are two types being grown National Pickling and Cross Country. I have found National Pickling is a suitable cultivar in my Zone 5.

    Last year Downy Mildew destroyed my cuccumbers just as they started to produce in quantity. There is no sign of the mildew this year to date.

    I notice one more corncumber was produced.
