Like any cucumber, lemon cukes have a lot of water in them (96%), but that can be refreshing on warm summer days when they are plentiful. They contain potassium and vitamin C, both important for healthy cells, and being alkaline they help to balance the pH of the body.
Wash these beautiful yellow cukes thoroughly. The little hairs on the outside will easily come off, leaving a smooth skin that is completely edible. They do not taste like lemons, but the color can fool your eyes and your eyes can fool your taste buds!
