These cucumbers are called as “vellarikkai” in tamil and as “kakdi” in Hindi.  Cucumbers were often eaten raw as salads or as pickles and now we are preparing a juice with it.

Botanical name for cucumber is Cucumis sativus. It is a creeping vine that bears cucumiform fruits that are used as vegetables. The cucumber is originally from South Asia and now grows in many continents. Many different types of cucumber are traded. In addition have posted one photo of the vegetable which is very common in India and it tastes so good.
