Is it advisable to pinch out the growing tips to stop the plants from getting too big? Thanks!

NO!!! The longer it grows the more zeeks you pick.

I have plants that are 5-6' long and still bearing zeeks. i want to pull them out but a fellow at the men's shed keeps hand pollinating them and they keep producing fruit. They are 5.5 months old.
