Oriental Express Cucumbers question (Pic)
This is my first year growing Oriental Express Cukes and I'm not sure how big they are supposed to be before picking. The packet says 12-14" but the odd thing about these is that they are ripening up in a strange way. The tops of all of them are skinnier than the bottoms and it makes it hard to tell when it's ripe. On the package it shows a smooth skin but I'm still having crinkly skin, it hasn't smoothed out. Does this mean I should leave them on there longer? I don't want to wait til they are over-ripe before picking and losing flavor quality. Any help would be great! Thanks!
