Updated on July 6, 2020

Rajan is a botany and chemistry major. He has worked as a poultry breeder for 23 years, breeding layer and broiler parents.


Latin Name: Cucumis sativus

In India, cucumber is called 'Kakri' and 'Kheera'.

Cucumber belongs to the family Cucurbitaceae. It is a plant that creeps on the ground but can be made to climb on to supports that it does with the help of its tendrils.

Cucumber originated in India but is now grown worldwide. It is the 4th most grown vegetable in the world. The cucumber vine has large leaves. Though it is a fruit botanically, it is regarded as a vegetable. Over 90% of cucumber is water.

There are 3 varieties of cucumber.

  • Slicing - eaten mainly fresh and raw.
  • Pickling - used in making pickles.
  • Burpless - A sweeter variety with thinner skin than the above 2 types and almost seedless. They are so-called as cucumber seeds are believed to cause gas in some people and this variety does not.

Cucumbers are easy to grow in the home garden. They produce prolifically and do not require a lot of time and care. Picking fruits regularly ensure regular availability of fresh produce.

Uses Of Cucumber

  • To Relieve Puffiness Around Eyes

Chill one cucumber and cut into 2. Keep them over closed eyes for 10 - 15 minutes. The cucumber hydrates the skin tissue around the eyes while chilling it contracts the blood vessels around the eyes and reduces swelling.

  • For A Cooling Summer Bath

Add 1 sliced cucumber to a tub of warm water to which you have added 2 cups Epsom salt and a fistful of cut peppermint leaves. Soak in this refreshing water for a while to avail of its cooling benefits.

  • For Relieving Fatigue

When you are feeling tired, consume a cucumber. The B vitamins and carbohydrates will give a quick boost to your energy levels.

  • To Prevent Bathroom Mirror Fogging

When having a hot shower or bath the mirror tends to get foggy. To prevent this rub a cucumber slice on the mirror.

  • To Get Rid Of Garden Slugs/Pests

Put some cucumber slices in a small aluminium tin. The chemicals released by cucumber react with the aluminium and emit a scent that sends these pests running for their life.

  • An Instant Cellulite Fix

Rub 1 -2 slices of cucumber on the areas of the skin affected by cellulite. This causes collagen in the skin to firm up thereby making the cellulite less noticeable.

  • To Prevent Hangover Headache

Eat some cucumber slices before going to sleep. The sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes in cucumber make one feel refreshed on waking up.

  • As a shoe Shine

Rub a freshly cut cucumber slice on the shoe to get an instant shine.

  • To Fix A Squeaky Hinge

Rub a cucumber slice on the affected hinge to make it silent.

  • To Clean Taps And Sinks

Rub a cucumber slice on stainless steel surfaces of taps, sinks and the like to remove watermarks and make them shine.

  • For Sunburn

Rub cucumber slices to soothe sunburnt skin.

  • For Constipation

Eat a cucumber daily to prevent constipation. The seeds are diuretic.

  • For The Skin

Cucumber is cooling and soothes, heals and softens the skin. Due to its cleaning and cleansing properties, it makes the skin soft and supple.

Because of its usefulness in treating skin problems, cucumber is used in many cosmetic preparations like face packs, facials, creams etc.

Health Benefits Of Cucumbers

  • Not only does cucumber keep the body hydrated being over 90% water, it helps keep the body weight in check as it is also low in calories as well as helping to flush out toxins from the body.
  • Cucumber contains 3 lignans - lariciresinol, pinoresinol and secoisolarirecinol. These lignans have been reported to reduce the risk of various cancers especially those of the prostate, breast, ovary and the uterus.
    Also, the phytonutrients- the cucurbitacins, that are in high levels, also provide anti-cancer properties.
  • Cucumber contains sterols that reduce cholesterol levels. The good levels of potassium, magnesium and fibre regulate blood pressure as well.
  • Cucumber is good for hair growth as it contains silicon and sulfur. To aid hair growth, juice of cucumber with carrot, lettuce and spinach should be taken regularly.
  • Cucumber has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The lignans and flavonoids, vitamin C, beta carotene and manganese, are responsible for these benefits.
  • Silica in cucumbers also prevent chipping and splitting of nails.
  • The high levels of Vitamin K are responsible for building strong bones and controlling neuronal damage in the brain of those affected by Alzheimer's.
  • The vitamin C and caffeic acid content of cucumber prevent water retention and therefore applying it topically reduces swellings around the eyes, helps in treating burns and dermatitis.
  • Cucumber contains the protein-digesting enzyme Erepsin. so eating cucumber with high protein meats can aid in digestion.
  • Consuming cucumber is beneficial for those with diabetes as it contains a hormone that is required by the pancreas to produce insulin.
  • Silica in cucumber is in good amounts and it promotes healthy joints and strengthens the connective tissue.
    A mixture of carrot juice and cucumber juice lowers uric acid levels and relieves the pain of gout and arthritis.
  • Fresh cucumber juice relieves heartburn, acidity, gastritis and even ulcers.

Some Cucumber Facts

Lack of water, poor quality soil or other stressors can cause cucumbers to become bitter.

A thin layer of wax is applied to most cucumbers before being sold to impart a shine for improving their appeal. Cucumber skin has no natural shine.

Cucumber, when kept with tomatoes, can spoil faster.

China is the largest producer of cucumbers worldwide while in the U.S. Florida is the leading producer.

The largest cucumber is believed to have weighed 59 pounds.

"Cool as a cucumber" is a well-known phrase. A fact that is true in reality as the inside of a cucumber can be up to 20 degrees cooler than the outside temperature. No wonder it is a summertime favourite.

      I feel stupid Rajan, I had no idea of the health benefits of cucumbers and I tend to pride myself as being someone who's up to date on good healthy things to eat. Kinda floored me to see that it could even be used to prevent fogging on mirrors as that is a constant irritant for me. Very detailed and informative hub and I'm voting this one up! Great job!

      Wow! You have some very useful and interesting facts about cucumbers in this hub. I never realized there were so many benefits from the cucumber. Now I can understand why my parents grew them every summer on the farm. Some years we would plant at least a half acre and sell them to a pickle company. It was back-breaking hard and uncomfortable work picking during the hot and humid August months. Voted up and sharing, Pinning, and Tweeting.

      My first time here and I picked a winner! Cucumbers are a favorite of mine but I never imagined that they were soooo extra specially good for me. The variety of things you have found that cucumbers can be used for... 'polishing shoes,' who knew? I do use cucumber slices to clean a sticky counter on days when I am eating them... but I have to say the puffy eye thing never worked for me. Thanks for all the research you must have done to bring this information to us... I really enjoyed your Hub and will share.

      Wow, Rajan, I must've learned a good dozen or more new facts about the versatile cucumber...such as how it can, in combination with aluminum, be an effective anti-slug garden aid...that its juice can shine one's shoes...and how it can be a coolant additive for one's bath in hot weather. As a man, I especially like the fact that it combats prostate cancer. I never cease to be amazed at the amount of knowledge you have about your health and nutrition topics, and I love that I always learn a great deal from being the blessed recipient of such information whenever I read your hubs. Frequently, I remember to share this info with my wife. Thank you so much, Rajan! Finally, I love that you are complementing these articles with some of your very own videos. In short summation, Rajan, you rock! Aloha, my friend!
