Cucumis Sativus


Cucumber is a widely-cultivated creeping vine plant in the Cucurbitaceae gourd family that usually bears cylindrical fruits used as vegetables. The cucumber originates from South Asia but now grows on most continents, as many different types of cucumber are traded on the global market. In North America, the term wild cucumber refers to plants in the genera Echinocystis and Marah, though the two are not closely related.
