I harvested my first cucumbers[plant purchased from a local greenhouse labeled simply as "cucumbers"] a few days ago. My vines and leaves look healthy. The cucumbers look healthy too. When I cut the first slice and tasted it, it was sticky and it left my mouth dry. The rest of the cucumber was left whole and on the surface that was cut, small clear beads formed. When I touch the beads, they are a gel-like consistency.
What could be causing this? What can I do to try to save the plant?
