The cucurbitacins in cucumber can also prevent atherosclerosis.
WHAT ARE THE Cucurbitacins?
I am unfamiliar with cucurbitacin toxicology, therefore, I did some research and found this bitter compound.
The bitterness is a group of the mixture called cucurbitacins which are produced naturally by the plant.
The higher level of cucurbitacin, the sharper the cucumber will taste.
High concentration of cucurbitacins are toxic
These compounds in high concentration are toxic and can cause food poisoning, including nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhea, and vomiting.
Usually, wild cucumbers contain significant levels of cucurbitacin and are very bitter.
The cucumber we grow in the garden or buy in the store tends to have fewer amounts of the bitter compound.
The bitter compounds are likely to be more concentrated in the stem end than in the blossom end of the cucumber
I recommend using your taste.
Cut a small piece of your cucumber and lick it if cucurbitacins are very bitter, don’t hesitate to dispose of it.
The Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) recommends that women aged 19 years and over consume 90 mcg of vitamin K each day and men 120 mcg helps improve calcium absorption.

I harvest them when they still small.
In my opinion, they taste better, and I love the crunchy part of it.
If you want to plant cucumbers
There are two types:
Slicing varieties and pickling
- Slicing cucumbers are smooth and dark green in appearance
- Pickling cucumbers are smaller than the slicing varieties; they have a bumpy texture and thinner skin for absorbing pickling spices.
Like most fruits and vegetables
Cucumbers need a lot of sunshine, water, and warm weather.
Cucumbers are vining plants, they need plenty of space, but you can grow-up vertically, in that way they don’t take much room in your area.
I like the Armenian variety because he does well in hot weather
This type of cucumber are long slender light green fruits
The fruit is sweet with a mild citrusy flavor.
Another type of cucumber
Socrates cucumber does well in colder conditions and can be grown indoors in locations that stay between 50 to 82 degrees.
Here some tips to plant your cucumbers
First, find a place with maximum sunshine, add compost to your soil to give them plenty of nutrients
The key is to keep the soil slightly moist at all times
Water deeply about a twice a week
Add mulch to help conserve the humidity
You can make your trellis with tomatoes cage
Lifting the vines off the ground promotes better airflow around your plant to prevent some disease.
If you buy regular cucumber in the supermarket, they are covered with wax.
This wax is to protect from the numerous hands that are touching them, between the harvest and the consumers.

The wax can seal pesticides and other contaminants within the skin.
Finally, it is preferable to buy the organic cucumbers.
