Monster Mutant Cucumber

Holy cow! Our cucumbers are huge this year! I put this in the cucumber salad tonight. It's sitting on a full-sized dinner plate!

Our cucumbers are giving it their all here, too. I check the vines thoroughly every day but, yesterday, I somehow missed one enormous one. It's the size of a bus. Well, not really, but it's immense.

However, it's perfect in color and shape. Perfectly rounded at each end and the striping is beautiful. It's almost a shame to cut into it...but we will.

I planted English cucumber seeds and I think they got them wrong. They seem to fat to be English? Is there more than one variety of English (long seedless) cucumber?

Question and sorry to get off topic.

My wife brought home a really unusual squash the other day. It looked like it was half yellow and half zucchini.
I wish I had snapped a photo of it.
It was almost exactly half and half. Yellow and green.

Anyone ever seen one like that. Was i looking at a hybrid gone wild, or was it just a half yellow, half green yellow squash?
