So I need to leave them longer - James Wong says to harvest at the size of an olive or a small grape.  Live in hope!

I wondered if I left them longer to ripen a bit further would they taste OK - I love cucumber but these **********!

There is a very heavy crop!

My cucamelons were almost throw away - I went on holiday for 3 weeks and came back to a 4 foot wall of tendrils, leaves and fruit.  (3 pots)  Followed directions about when to eat - many are size of olives or bigger none are soft.  Tried them (& husband too) not lime flavoured melon - just bitter cucumber.  I may try and pickle some
