Cucumber Crystal Apple


We were going to start with a cucumber joke, but we’re not that kind of brand. Instead, we’ll tell you how this unusual variety got its name. It was once dubbed “Apple Cucumber,” due to its size and shape, whilst others called it “Crystal Lemon” for its pale yellow colour. The names were mushed together and the plant is now known as the Crystal Apple Cucumber. (Creative stuff, eh?).

When mature, the Crystal Apple’s pale, greenish-white skin resembles a Granny Smith apple. To appreciate the smooth, creamy fruits, enjoy them while they’re young. In addition to being the butt of the joke we’ll never tell you, they make a bright, scrumptious addition to salads.
