The first cucumber



The first cucumber shows up,
tiny fruit with flower at the end.
The spiky surface would probably protect it for a while against intruders
before it balloons up into a nice baton shape.

To see little fruit
coming out is a joy.

  6. Isn't it fun to see that little cucumber growing behind the bloom. I love the things. I just got my seeds planted for them two weeks ago but they are up and growing nicely. Your garden has done so well this year. That is too bad that the termites ruined your Papaya tree. What a loss.

  7. Thank you Bangchik. This is my first time knowing and learning about cucumber. Didn't think it would start with a flower! Looking forward to see its progression into a baton. It is really amazing when you think about it. Nasi lemak will never be the same again.

  9. keewee ~ thanks, hopefully yours will turn out well.

    Hortist ~ welcome back and make your horticulture site colourful for all of us to learn....

    Tatyana@MySecretGarden ~ there are only two plants growing right now, definitely not enough to pick and bite like apples. The fruit has been reserved for nasi lemak...

    pdxlisa ~ they will flower soon in your garden. There are lot of flowers but most are males in ours...

  10. Patsi 'Garden Endeavors' ~ their flowers are pretty but bitter gourd flowers are even prettier.

    Hocking Hills Gardener ~ hopefully your cucumber grows well, so that i can learn a few things here and there. This is my first attempt by the way. About papaya, well, there is a limit to what a plant can grow...

    Ocean Girl ~ your first time knowing how a cucumber develops. Me too.., first time growing. Yes, nasi lemak is waiting for the cucumber to get big enough for knife to slice...

    Rebecca @ In The Garden ~ yes, the little cucumber is cute. rough and spiky..., but i am sure it will smoothen in days to come...

  11. My greenhouse cucumbers are at the same stage as yours. They just grow so quickly this time of year. I have an all female variety so should get lots and lots!

  12. Matron ~ they really grow quickly. Glad that you have all female variety. But mine is just a single fruit bearing flower, the rest are all happy sterile flowers....
