As they say - you learn something new everyday. Certainly very useful to know that cucumbers can be portioned off from the plant. I expect the remaining portions will continue to grow? My cucumber plant is growing lavishly with multiple fruits. The first fruits are already 12 ins long. I hesitate to harvest them because although the skin near the stem is smooth, it's still prickly further along the fruit. Should I wait till the whole fruit is smooth skinned?
