Thanks to everyone who offered advice on my lemon cucumber. I decided to pick the lemon cucumber Sunday. It was still green but it had just started to turn yellow. The little thorns brushed off with ease. We peeled it, sliced it, and put it in a tomato salad. It tasted very similar to a cucumber however it was less tart. It was still crisp and delicious with the tomatoes. The plant itself is quite prolific it’s got at least 10 cucumbers growing on it. I think I’ll need to find a few new recipes soon for cucumbers soon.
