Farmers Market: Cucumbers

Cucumbers are delicious and refreshing vegetables. This is a very low calorie and healthy veggie, full of nutrients, vitamins and other health benefits. Cucumbers are from the same family as gourds, squash, melons and zucchini. This is a popular vegetable among backyard gardeners because it is relatively easy to grow. Cucumbers come in all shapes and sizes, and can vary in color but are generally dark green. They are crisp, firm and refreshing. Cucumbers can protect against colon cancer and can help eliminate toxins from the body. Additionally, they can reduce heart rate in some people.

Cucumbers can be found all through the year and can be enjoyed raw. They are also eaten in salads or in the form of juice.
