Round and yellow, this tennis ball-sized cucumber is a perfect serving for one or two people. It is believed to have been introduced to the US in the late 1800s. Lemon cucumber does not have a lemon taste, only color, but has a thin, tender skin with a flavor a little milder than a regular cucumber. One great advantage to this cucumber is that you can eat it all in one sitting with no half-cuke left to store in the fridge. Prolific plants are easy to grow and need less heat to ripen than some cucumbers, making this a good choice for cooler climates. It is also less apt to develop bitterness. This is the cucumber often seen in ethnic Indian markets. To save space, give the vigorous plants a fence to climb. Try hollowing out them for a cold soup summer appetizer.
