How do you shape a cucumber?
Place a developing cucumber on one half of the mold, with the cucumber itself nestled inside the inside of the mold and the stem poking through the hole on the top of the mold. Put the other half of the mold on top, and then snap it together. This will create a three-dimensional form that will surround the growing cucumber. You should keep the mold where it is, dangling on the vine.
