My first year growing cucumbers. Had a very nice (rather overwhleming) harvest of pickling and salad varieties, but missed one cuke and it grew to quite a large size. Very pretty, too. Took it in to show the wife, who dutifully oohed and aahed and put it in the kitchen counter fruit bowl to forget about until it rots (sadly, that's how we roll). Noticed two months later that it still looked fresh-picked. It's been five months now and still no sign of wrinkling or rot. No other cuke, or even winter squash, I've ever seen has done this. Mine is strictly an organic hobby garden, so no weird chemicals in play. Should I look for a team of ag scientists or cut it open myself and plant its seeds? Does it just think it's a gourd?
