Cucumber is a vegetable in the Cucurbitaceae family. The plant first grew in the foothills of the Himalayas and was domesticated in India almost 3,000 years ago. The cucumber is monoecious, meaning it produces male and female flowers on the same plant. It can only grow in hot and temperate climates. It is a crawling plant with tendrils, which enable it to grow between 1 and 3 metres tall. The cucumber fruit is long and fleshy.
