Marianne Lipanovich added this to Summer Crops: How to Grow Cucumbers
Harvest: Harvest time depends on the type of cucumbers. Once the plants start producing usable fruit, cut them off the stems while the fruits are still young, as older ones can become seedy. Plan to pick several times a week; cucumbers grow quickly.Slicers are generally good to use once they reach about 6 inches, picklers may be ready to go at 2 inches for sweet pickles and 5 inches for dill pickles; you may need to wait until long varieties reach 20 inches.More guides to summer crops
