Having trouble! Last year I used saved seed from my Yamato Extra Long cucumbers of '07. All of the plants yielded short, plump and very bitter cucumbers. It was such a disappointment to go all summer without good cucumbers, and more so because I don't know why. Is there a special way I was supposed to handle the process of saving seed? Did they maybe cross with another variety and it end up affecting all the seed? If so, how should I keep that from happening? Am desperate because I am not finding that cucumber in the stores this year and it looks as thought Ferry Morse is no longer providing the seed. Thanks so much for any help! B.B.
