Cucumbers (Cucumis sativa)
Cucumbers were enjoyed by the ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks; though they were first cultivated in India nearly 3,000 years ago. As they are 95% water, cucumbers are a refreshing, cool fruit-just like their melon relatives. Cucumbers' high vitamin E content makes them an effective skin conditioner as well.
- Cucumbers can be stored in the fridge for a week or so.
