    Looks good . I am getting more and more into growing stuff; on a tangent anyone remember the old stand up joke

    I bought the seeds from a shop in Buriram and yes the plants are growing in a plastic greenhouse similar to this.

    They look great, But if i can ask,
    Did you buy the seed, or just dry out a cucmber to get the seeds?
    The reason I ask is a male seed will produce the same fruit but taste bitter, whereas the female fruit is the one that you, I and everybody generally eats.
    Its a bit pot luck if you don't know, but all the same, I am sure they will turn out fine.
    I'm there

    I bought the seeds in a packet in los .The plants as with most cucumber plants unless you get a single sex variety will produce male and female flowers. So you have to pick off the male flowers to stop the cucumbers, which grow from the female flowers, becoming bitter. The female flowers have a little cucumber behind the flower and the male ones do not, the male flowers do not produce a fruit

    Lucky it's a cucumber Keith - you wouldn't want a พฺริก named after you.
