The Q&A Archives: Cucumber Questions-stopped producing

Question: We planted cucumbers in Houston. They grew like crazy producing beautiful cucs. We had rain from Hurricane and the plants have almost stopped producing. Holes in the leaves, some yellowing of leaves and cucs and flowers withering. Any suggestions? We have been thrilled with the enormous growth and the potential for a large crop. Harvest was good early, but has almost completely stopped.

Answer: James,

Cukes tend to play out in the heat. I suggest you consider replanting for a fall crop. In your area this month is still a good time to plant cucumbers.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
