    This was supposed to be a Straight Eight cucumber plant, but it grew into this massive ribbon with non-productive flowers. I've pulled it from the garden because it was outgrowing and shading out the other normal cucumber plants. Should I be concerned about a virus, or was this just a crazy mutant?

    All right. Fasciation. Good to know, and thank you. The plant's been culled for the sake of the rest.
