Cucumber dates back to 100 BC. The Chinese were the first nation to grow and consume cucumbers, and in the 16th century, the Indians introduced cucumbers to the world in their current form. It is interesting to know that cucumber is one of the pumpkins and is in the same family with cantaloupe, watermelon and squash.
The stems of the cucumber plant are creeping and wrap around each support. Cucumbers can also grow hydroponically without roots in the ground and twist on the ground if they do not have a support. Cucumber has large leaves and can shade other fruits. Cucumbers are usually cylindrical in shape and can grow up to 60 cm in length and 10 cm in diameter. From a botanical point of view, cucumber is a set, in other words, it is a fruit whose outer part is hard and has no division inside. But like tomatoes and squash, it is treated like leeks in preparation and food. Cucumber is 95% water
Benefits of Cucumber
Cucumber contains water and nutrients and is important for human health and physiological stability. In ancient Iranian medicine, cucumber was considered a cold and moist fruit and was believed to help cool the body and digest food, so it grows during the summer, but industrial methods follow this. They wanted the product to be available in all seasons, so they introduced the greenhouse cucumber to the market
Cucumbers that are currently offered in the Iranian market have three different types: formal cucumber (first class green), greenhouse cucumber and salad cucumber. The first step in any purchase is: it should be noted that the choice of product is compatible with the type of consumption
Salad cucumbers are watery and bulky, while thin cucumbers have less water and instead taste better than other types. Greenhouse cucumbers do not have much taste and are more decorative
