Dear friends.

Would like to validate names for cucumber in Malayalam ... ഡംഗരി damgari, ഊര്‍വ്വാരു uurvvaaru ... reference: http://www.dictionary.mashithantu.com/dictionary/cucumber
These names are far away from what are listed at ENVIS - FRLHT .... kakkari, mullanvellari, mullen-belleri, vellari ... http://envis.frlht.org/plant_details.php?disp_id=695


Regards.

In separate responses, Sheji ji has provided following:

• ... ... name ' vellari'-  വെള്ളരി stands for cucumber
• ... ... kakkari is another sps by which we make salads

Many thanks to Shej ji for the help.

"Kakkari".
