    I was picking vegetables from our garden and came across this mutation.

    The cucumber is called Diva (Diva produces distinctly tender, crisp, sweet, bitter-free, and seedless cukes. (Plants are gynoecious (all-female) and parthenocarpic (grow fruits without pollination). :confused:

    Ya, it wouldn't look like that if it didn't take 3 attempts to pick it.

    you picked it too soon....few more days and the arms,legs and eyes would be plainly visible. I suppose its best you got it when you did....once they are able, they put up a tremendous fight.
