VEG­ETABLE OF THE MONTH

NZ Grower - - NEWS -

Cu­cum­bers are thought to have orig­i­nated in South­ern Asia and were very pop­u­lar in In­dia.

They even­tu­ally spread to Europe, where for a long time they were used to quench thirst as they con­tain 96% wa­ter. Cu­cum­bers are re­lated to wa­ter­melon, and are fre­quently used in sal­ads, adding an in­ter­est­ing tex­ture. In New Zealand we can buy sev­eral va­ri­eties of cu­cum­ber.
