What is a lemon cucumber? Although this round, yellow veggie is often grown as a novelty, it is appreciated for its mild, sweet flavor and cool, crispy texture. (By the way, lemon cucumbers don’t taste like citrus!) As an added benefit, lemon cucumber plants continue to produce later in the season than most other varieties. Eat it skin and all, just like you would an apple; non-bitter and burpless.
