Vintage veggieLittle lemon cucumbers are making a comeback. The pale yellow cukes - in season now - are juicy and sweet, with succulent white flesh. They have a bigger seed cavity than traditional cucumbers. And no, they don't taste at all like lemons.
Pictured here are lemon cukes from Weavers Way Co-op grown from seeds dating back to 1890.
