Monster cukes, too big for my fingers to reach around (and I have man-size farmer hands)

@twin-dragons at any length is fine, teeny-tiny ones go into pickles and any bigger into normal consumption. The ones I pick are about 4-5 inches. I haven't had it so far but assume left too long you risk rotting with contact with soil
