Can you freeze Apple Cucumbers. As I have tons of them all growing at the same time

No you cant freeze them, they go all horridable, mushy.

They would probably end up all mushy. Try pickling them - look up internet for a pickling recipe . You only need a plant or two to feed a family - or stagger the planting times. Feed the neighbours or friends. I have just given away over half my sweet corn crop (30 plants) as I didn't think they would hold on too well (go starchy) in the current hot weather.
