Hello every1,

Can any1 please help me with the botanical name of long cucumber, popularly known as foot in Punjabi. It is i guess different from "tar" or kakdi which i suppose is botanically Cucumis melo var. ultissimus.

Please re-confirm.

Best wishes,
Nanu

The foot long cucumbers are commonly sold here under the name English cucumbers. Appropriately they are Cucumis sativa cultivar 'Burpless Tasty Green'
