The snake cucumber, AKA yard-long cucumber, snake melon, is defined within culinary terms by its appearance, however, it is botanically classified as a melon. Its initial cultivation is dated back to the 15th Century, which puts it into the category of ancestral varieties. This takes greater historical precedent over heirloom.
Also known as kakri in India, Atta in Egypt, feggous or fakkous in Morocco, acur in Turkey, φακούσι (fakoosi) in Cyprus and uri in Japan, it should NOT be confused with the snake gourds (Trichosanthes spp.).
The flesh is crisp, succulent and mildly flavored, similar to a common cucumber. Ideal sized cucumbers will range in length from 10-15 inches and is entire edible.
There is no need to peel this cucumber, there is no bitterness. Its thin skin makes it an ideal fresh slicing cucumber for rawgreen leaf, chopped salads and pasta salads. Their delicate flavor allows them to become a perfect textural component in sandwiches and sushi. Well suited for warm climates.
