Is Cucumber a Vegetable?
Cucumbers belong to the gourd family and come in several varieties. Many people think of cucumbers as a vegetable, however, botanically speaking – they are classified as a fruit. Cucumbers grow from flowers and they contain seeds, and these seeds can be used to plant and cultivate more cucumbers (which is what makes cucumber a fruit and not a vegetable).
Do Cucumbers Have Carbs?
Cucumbers are naturally low in calories, carbs and fat. About one cup of cucumbers contains about 4 grams of carbs.
