So cucumbers are rich in fiber with antioxidant properties that can keep you healthy and even prevent cancer among many other benefits. Wow this is excellent information to learn from. I try to eat healthy but sometimes I just get tired of eating the same things. I’ll add salads and cucumbers into my routine from now on, thank you for sharing.

    • Hi Paul; thanks for your comment. Cucumber is one of the foods that I take for my medicine and my diet. I ate the fruit I drank the Juice I wash my hair and my skin in the juice, I cool my eyes with the Cucumber Slice.

      I found it to be an exotic beneficial fruit for me.

  3. Hi there,

I will try to include more cucumber to my diet. I have this Thai cucumber salad recipe that is really good. I am going to get some at the grocery tonight 🙂 will try to grow it too 🙂 thanks 🙂

  4. We started a small garden a few years ago, and tried to grow green peppers, tomato, pumpkin, and cucumber. Everything did pretty well the first year, but I wouldn’t grow pumpkin again in a small garden.

    The cucumbers that we did grow were very small though. I think I may have planted the pickling kind, but we ate them all the same.

    I was surprised at how hard to handle they were, they almost had thorns growing on them. And also you have a very narrow window to pick them in, because they would quickly turn yellow and bitter, which is something that I wasn’t expecting.

    I chose to include cucumber in my garden last year, because we include them in our green juices and salads. I have heard that cucumber is promotes healthy skin, and my kid will eat them.

    • Hi James; thanks for your comment. The size of the Cucumber could the result of more than one thing. Some species are small. However, not all soil is suitable for Cucumber.  If you are planting for home use only;

      One Cucumber seed when it is grown can bear a lot of fruits. You should plant a small amount because sometimes they bear so many.

      Without having some outlet for the fruits you and your family will not be able to consume the crop. And to have Cucumber consistently you plant one or two new seed every month.

  5. Cucumber is a very important and nutritious food to consume in that they help with weight loss, diabetes and other unwanted body ills. It is known for its low cholesterol which makes it very suitable for consumption. Its interesting to find out here that it’s also very helpful in preventing dehydration.

    • Hi Ennymatics; thanks for your comment; Weight loss is only one of the many health benefits that Cucumber contained. If you have any health issue you should dd a reasonable amount of Cucumber to your nutrition and diet. Prove for yourself how amazingly beneficial the fruit works.

      Dorcas

  6. Cucumber is really nutritional most elderly people in my family use it and they say it helps in hydration and as you pointed out its cheap and affordable.

    The most surprising part is my aunty who had issues with skin inflammation after rubbing so many cream without any positive effect. A friend of hers told her to start taking cucumber to my surprise after weeks she reacted positively.

    • Hi Nsikakabasi; thanks for your comment. Since the older folks in your family are eating Cucumber regularly, you should be able to identify some difference in them compared to some other people who you know who are not eating Cucumber regularly.

      As your elderly family members might not see the necessity of sharing the beneficial qualities that are in the fruit.

      That person who had shared the skin benefit with your Aunt so she could apply the fruit to her skin and is now enjoying the healing benefit her skin has realised had done the right thing.

      I hope that your Aunt is sharing the good news with all the people she meets.

  7. I enjoyed reading about cucumbers as we eat lots at home. But really did not know all the health benefits. We also make cucumber water which is very refreshing. We also add cucumber and other non-starchy vegetables to our dog’s diet. She is old so we make all her food to control what she eats. 

    • Hi Glen; thank you for your comment. There are a lot of people who are consuming Cucumber but do not know how powerful it works. If they knew they would consume more of the fruit.

      Glen; do you know that many people would want to be your Dog so that you take good care of them? It is a good thing you are doing for your Dog seeing that she is old.

      Please share my post with your family and friends

However it is a vegetable so noble that you can use it in a thousand ways either in nutritious juices combined with some other vegetable or fruit, salads, side dishes or even as a snack with a dressing or just with salt and lemon, and besides everything, it has very few calories! Thank you!

  10. My family loves cucumbers, and we eat them nearly daily in some manner. We do grow them in the garden in the summer time, but I never really thought about trying to pot plant them. I wonder if they would grow in a pot during the cold months?

    Though we eat them often, and are aware that they are good for us, we didn’t know exactly why. So I appreciate you sharing all of your nutrition knowledge here. I found it interesting to see red and blue/purple cucumbers in your article. I sure have never seen those before! I may have to give them a try.

    • Hey Cris; thanks for your comment; I should have been sharing my knowledge of Cucumber with the public a long time ago.

      I used it I know it is healthy and beneficial to help with many chronic diseases, but I never see the need to share my knowledge before I begin to write this post.

  14. I didn’t know that cucumber has benefits such as helping prevent hair loss. It doesn’t surprise me at all that it helps with a lot of health ailments. 

    Some of these benefits can help me as I have started to gain some unwanted weight over the past couple of years. I think if I don’t change soon, it could lead to other ailments like hypertension or potentially colon cancer. So I’ll be adding cucumber to my diet.

    • Hi Jessie; thanks for your comment. I am glad that you understand the health benefits that come when consuming Cucumber. 

      Yes, because of Cucumber fibre and watery content you will see changes in your weight if you continuously consume the fruit.

  15. Oh God; I love cucumbers. These past months I have them every week for cucumber salads (pepper, salt, sliced tomatoes, onions and lemon juice = yum!).

    I love to eat tiny cucumber pickles too!

    I did cultivate my cucumber for myself once, and they can get pretty big! With all that water and faint the taste is, I didn’t think about the nutritious value of cucumbers until today after reading this article.

      Dorcas

  16. Wow! I had no idea that cucumbers provided so much nutritional health benefits. Cucumbers have always been one of those vegetables that I have always enjoyed eating.

    And my parents have always told me that it was healthy and I ever just took their word for it but have never actually looked into the health benefits until now and wow!

    Thank you so much for this article.

    • Hey Huy; thanks for your comment. There are many healthy foods that we generally enjoy eating, yet not being aware of the health benefits that we are getting from these foods.

      Sometimes parents will tell the children that food like Cucumber is healthy for them and stop. They never take the time to explain the reasons why that particular food is healthy to eat. Even now parents are falling short on teaching to their children in details.

      Parents failed to give concise information to the children that can save them from a lot of health issues later on in their lives.

      Dorcas

  17. I found your post informative! I was not aware that cucumber is a superfood and did not know all of the benefits.

    It is cool to see all the variety that cucumbers come in. Of course.

    I seem to have a “black thumb” when it comes to growing things, any tips or tricks to keep these guys healthy and thriving while they are home growing?

    • Hi Alisha; thanks for your comment. The many nutrients that are in Cucumber have superseded many other foods from the Garden. Cucumber Nutrition value is high. Like some other foods, Cucumber is a versatile plant.

      There is a salt that you can get to buy at farm stores called “Plant Food” you can add to the water if your plants are potted; Otherwise, you should sprinkle the powdered salt around the root of the plant in the ground.

      Plants like the Cucumber, you may give it a space of about five inches away from the root.
