Cucumbers (for pickling) can soon be harvested with a commercial machine in a single once-over operation. A commercial prototype machine is available, and the feasibility of the once-over harvesting is enhanced by double-cropping possibilities in California and by date-of-planting information included in one of the two articles describing these studies.
