Cucumber

Cucumber, also known as Cucumis sativus, is one of the most cultivated vine plants in the world. It belongs to the Cucurbitaceae gourd family and has noticeable cucumiform fruits, which are often considered vegetables when they are actually fruits.

This fruit is high in beneficial nutrients, certain plant compounds, and antioxidants that may help treat and even prevent some health conditions.

Also, cucumbers are low in calories and contain a good amount of water and soluble fiber, making them ideal for promoting hydration and aiding in weight loss.

Cucumber Varieties

There are several known types of cucumbers, such as Armenian, English, lemon, and Persian.

Armenian cucumbers are long and thin with either dark and light green shades. They are crunchy and delicious even when eaten raw.
