I love this cucumber. Pick them when they have just a hint of yellow to them. When they get dark yellow they are overripe. Can eat the skins and all just like an apple.

Thanks for the advice, didn't realize you could eat the skin as well

On these you can. The skin isn't bitter like it is on the green ones.

I too have grown these little tasty cucumbers and find them great fresh from the vine , few of them make it into the kitchen.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
