@carolecuttingitfine sounds odd but give them a sniff and if they smell sweet they'll be nearly ready...🤔 the other thing to do is tap them with your knuckle and if it sounds hallow u r good to go

Yes @hayleyaj just treated them like green house cucumbers! @littleproverbs I've had a sniff (😂😂) and a tap and I think I'll leave them a bit longer thank you for the #advice

Just treated them the same as the cucumbers next to them in the greenhouse, plenty of water, feed once a week, and Bamboo and twine supports! First time I've tried, however think it may be getting a bit late for them to grow to full size!? Watch this space @Martin68
