This time-lapse is to help identify the female cucumber flower. Filmed by Neil Bromhall for
Behind the female flower is a small cucumber fruit.
The male cucumber flower does not have a fruit.
This time-lapse took about 4 days to film and you can see the cucumber starting to grow.
Not all cucumber plants have both male and female flowers.
If the indoor varieties do have male flowers they should be removed otherwise the cucumbers can have a bitter taste.
