The Q&A Archives: Can Watermelon And Pickling Cucumbers Cross Pollinate

Question: I have sugar babys and pickling cucumbers groing togather and the curlie thing turns brown and the meat in the melon is still white with a little pink it taste ok but doesent look right whats wrong

Answer: Pollination this season would affect the seeds inside this year's fruit and fruit grown from them but not this year's fruit. However, it is possible that there is incomplete pollination occuring and that is causing poor fruit quality; or that they are still not quite ripe.
