Native to South Asia, the cucumber has been cultivated by humans for at least 3,000 years. It was likely introduced to Europe by the Greeks or Romans and has since become the fourth most consumed vegetable in the world, although in botanical terms it is classified as a pepo – a type of berry with a hard outer rind.
With its subtle and refreshing flavour, the cucumber is a staple in a diverse array of cuisines – both food and drink – and is valued for its versatility as well as its health benefits.
