Nope. Looks like some kind of squash or a gourd. What do the male and female flowers look like? That will tell us more. Can you post pics?

Re: Cucumber or not

It is starting to take shape like a gourd but it could be a butternut squash. It is not a cucumber. If you want cucumbers pull that plant up and plant again while you still have time.
