Hourglass Cucumber

Here is the cucumber growing on our neighbour’s side of the fence. It is very sexy  attractive. It has an hourglass shape! I can tell you who in our family does NOT have an hourglass shape but she will KILL me so I better not.

Mummy thought the cucumber wasn’t pollinated properly so that’s why it is shaped so oddly. But the reason (from my gardening books my Pediatrician gave me for my birthday) is that it the plant was deprived of water then given a lot of water, so the fruit develops irregularly.
