They are the baby pickling types... Seeds were bought last year but not all used up.. Those that were grown last year were fine... They are all misshapened... as if the baby cukes below the flower got orders to grown on only one side... Left, right, top, bottom... None of them came out even... I pollinated them by hand when I see the females opened... took a male flower, ripped out the petals and stuck it onto the female... Was that the problem ? Please shed some light !!
