So, I have been busy trying to pollinate cucumbers with a paint brush. Since I purchased the plants this year, I have six varieties. My lemon cucumber flowers looked strange to me but I tried to pollinate them anyway.

Yesterday I was reading the Territorial Seed catalog and find out that lemon cucumbers are hermaphrodites -- they contain both male and female parts on every flower! Who knew! I can just image the plant laughing at me.

Does this mean that I don't have to try to pollinate this plant by hand? If it has both male and female parts in the same plant, won't it pollinate itself every time?

Yes when they are hermaphrodite they will do the work of both gender flowers. I read that this year as well. While I didnt get to grow them I sent seedlings to the neighbor I started, and they are doing fine. I will grow them again, I liked their flavor and looks.

Oh great, a self-sufficient cucumber, that's what I need.
I hope that means I can cover this one w/ netting and keep the buggers off of it.
A co-worker told me about these last week, and said she will share some of her upcoming harvest with me. My hermaphrodite cucumber Icon_cheers
