I grew "sweet slice" cucumber this year. It's a great tasting vining cucumber, and we had 8 or 10 nice cucumbers. I'm curious however - why do some cucumbers develop either a "crimped" or "curled" end, while others grow long and straight? Obviously the latter are better in terms of filling up the salad bowl with cucumber. Just wondering if there's anything I can do in the garden to produce more of the long/straight variety.
