My name is Lauren. I am 8. I am doing a report on cucumbers for school. You have them in veggie list. Other places list them as a fruit. Which is it?Thank you, Lauren
As a plant, cucumbers are considered to be a fruit because of how they grow. But when we cook and eat plant foods, fruits are considered to be those plants that taste sweet and veggies are considered to be those plants that tend not to be sweet. Since cucumbers don’t tend to be very sweet, they are referred to as a veggie and eaten like a veggie.
