It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Farmers Market Tuesday!
Today we have lemon cucumber!
These little guys are called “lemons” because of their size and color not their flavor. The have a mild flavor and thin skins that are easier to digest than their regular cucumber relatives.
I usually use them in salads the same way I would a regular cucumber but it is just nice to switch it up from the regular green guys.
Another difference is the seed structure. Here we have 5 wells instead of one solid seed bore.
They still make you burp!
What is your favorite way to eat a cucumber? Have you tried lemon cucumbers???
