Cucumber vs. squash identification
Asked Jun 29, 2009, 03:47 PM
So I bought what I thought were 2 Burpless Bush Hybrid cucumber plants yesterday.
Obviously, they're still babies and haven't sprouted anything but a few leaves yet.
When I went to plant them I noticed I accidentally bought, what the pot tag said is, 1 cucumber 1 Crookneck squash plant.
The leaves look exactly the same, so I don't know if one was mislabeled or if I really need to go back to Home Depot and return the squash plant.
I'd keep it, but I only have a potted garden with limited space, and this cucumber is potted garden friendly.
I don't know that I would be able to facilitate the squash plant.
Are these leaves really that identical? Or do I trust the tag?
Thanks so much!
