I have been growing Femspot cucumbers for at least 30 years and this year the one i got from the nursery has two fruit/flowers at each leaf joint - what should i do? Is it a rougue or has someone else had one like this?

Janice, I've never grown that variety so I don't know its traits. You can get genetic glitches from time to time in any plant. Wait and see what develops. If you get two cukes, and the plant is supporting them both, you've doubled your production. If one is compromising the other, you might need to sacrifice one.
