Long Shot Carosello Barese Growout

In a long-shot attempt to find a spotted carosello specimen similiar to my friend Giuseppe, I grew out the Carosello Barese in my hydrophonic basket to see if anything different occured Apparently not. This grow-out turned out to produce the same carosello cucumber variety as always.

Note: growing in poor soils or conditions in which the plants feel stressed will not produce bitter fruit. However, fruit size and shape will suffer as a result. Of all the factors that result from plant stress, I have not found that fruit color changes from plants grown in ideal conditions to those grown in less desirable conditions.
