How do you know when to pick cucumber and purple egg plants?

Cucumbers can be harvested when they are 4-5" long. If you leave them to grow larger, the seeds become large and woody and the cucumber can become bitter. The more often you harvest, the more cucumbers your plant will produce. Purple eggplant should be harvested when it is 6-7 inches with a very glossy, dark purple color. If the color begins to turn dull, the eggplant is overripe.
