RFF#63 – Cucumbers are one of the oldest vegetables eaten by humans

There’s record of people eating cucumbers 3000 years ago in ancient China, they’re talked about in the Old Testament and were “relished as a culinary treasure” in ancient Rome.

I learned about this fact from: Hawkes AD. The World of Vegetable Cookery. Simon and Schuster, New York: 1968.
