Strange fruit vegetable… This is a cucumber/mole/naked hedgehog. It’s not some exotic variety, it’s a Boston Pickling cuke that has been subjected to my anything-but-green thumb (though my intentions were good)….
The plant wound up dying shortly after it produced this (the 4th funny little cuke of the season, despite careful attention and hand-pollination by me, La Bee)…
Oh well. Round deux is on the horizon.
