Stick cucumbers here…

A fun fact about learning fun facts!

During brunch yesterday, the topic of melons was brought up. It was an intense conversation of cantaloupe, honey dew, and watermelons. (side note: more people seem to prefer watermelon out of the the three)

Then suddenly I was able to throw a curve ball into the conversation when I was able to share something that I learned on March 7, 2007…

Cucumbers are a part of the Cucurbitaceae family, the same family as the cantaloupe.

Cucurbitaceae

Latin name: Cucumis sativus L. Family: Cucurbitaceae
