I think cucumbers are fruits like tomatoes. Their seeds are within the flesh. Vegetables generally are leafy things. Cabbage is a vegetable, so is lettuce. Broccoli is a flower. Carrots are roots, like potatoes.

from what I have learned , though I could be completely wrong on this . It is a veggie . I am not sure . I got to thinking about it for a second , and I know tomatoes are considered a fruit , and the logic behind that still kind of boggles my mind . I am pretty sure though cucumbers are considered a veggie. I will come back later to see if I am right . Happy mylotting
