The Q&A Archives: Picking Lemon Cucumbers

Question: When is the best time to pick the lemon cucumbers? My sister got some seeds after tasting some a couple of years ago and she doesn't remember about picking them.

Answer: When they reach the size of lemons, they're usually ready for eating. Since they are so prolific, you can "taste-test" a bit before and after this size to see what you prefer as different soil and weather conditions may influence flavor. Enjoy!
