Cucumbers are generally a vegetable for warm seasons. They grow on vines in gardens or in pots, and are available in varieties good for both slicing and pickling. A cucumber is ready to be eaten when it is firm, green and crisp. Cucumbers are a low-calorie snack. They can be added to sandwiches, pickled or made into a salad with water and vinegar.
