    Help/info please. I have two La Diva Cucumbers growing next to each other in a plastic grow house. One is taller but appears to be only producing Male fruit; the other is a little smaller and has three small cucumbers growing.

    This year’s seed, both been given the same amount of water & both in the same size pots.

      Got me confused, just looked it up, mostly says for outdoor growing but ok undercover.
      One site says it is an all female variety, then goes on to say, pick off male flowers???

      Another site says its a ridge type so need pollinating.:scratch:

        I've had cucumbers produce all male flowers at first and then start to produce female flowers. I'd just pick them off.
