Cucumber
Cultivated for at least 3,000 years, the cucumber originated from India, where a great many varieties have been observed. It was probably introduced to Europe by the Greeks or Romans. Records of cucumber cultivation appear in France in the 9th century, England in the 14th century, and in North America by the mid-16th century.

  • The vine has large leaves that form a canopy over the fruits.

  • Three main types of cucumber
    • Slicing
      Cucumbers grown to eat fresh are called slicing cucumbers
    • Pickling
      Commercial pickles are made from cucumbers specially bred for uniformity of length-to-diameter ratio and lack of voids in the flesh
    • Burpless/Seedless
      Burpless cucumbers are sweeter and have a thinner skin than other varieties of cucumber. They can grow as long as 2-feet, are nearly seedless, and have a delicate skin.
