Why Are Cucumbers Yellow Instead Of Green

Question From: R. McCauley - Toms River, New Jersey, United States
Q: We had a few green cucumbers, now the rest are growing but are all yellow? What is causing this?

A: There are several reasons why cukes turn yellow. Lack of water and over ripeness are the most common. A disease called cucumber mosiac will also do it. I'd start with watering and timely picking. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
