Bent Cucumbers

Last year I grew 'Kyoto Three Foot' cucumbers in the greenhouse where the fruit hung down from the rafters thus.


This year I let them meander along the ground outside and this was the result.

The outdoor ones look natural and somehow happier but probably not what you were looking for. Was there a notable difference in flavour?

Love them both. Although it is harder to peel curlicues.

I eat them any shape and they were as tasty bowed as straight. Or not. Michael agrees with Samuel Johnson that " a cucumber should be well sliced, & dressed with pepper & vinegar, and then thrown out, as good for nothing."
I eat the peel.
