|I planted cucumbers and some are yellow,are they safe to eat and why are they yellow.
|Cucumbers that are turning yellow are almost always over-ripe. When cucumbers become over ripe, their green coloring produced from chlorophyll begins to fade, resulting in a yellowing pigment. Cucumbers become bitter with size and yellow cucumbers are generally not fit for consumption. A yellow cucumber can also be the result of a virus, too much water, or a nutrient imbalance, but the most common cause is not harvesting soon enough.
