The Japanese cucumber, AKA Kyuri, is a member of the Cucuritaceae family, one of the most important food plant families, which also includes melons, gourds, squashes and pumpkins. Japanese cucumbers are the fruit of a trailing and climbing plant yet they are often referred to as a vegetable and utilized as such. They contain 96 percent water and their flesh can be up to 20 degrees cooler than their skin, a technical trademark that is quintessential to the fruits growth and survival in hot climates. There are three classifications of cucumbers: slicing, burpless and pickling. Japanese cucumbers are one of the zenith varieties of burpless cucumbers, though they can be used for slicing and pickling too. Though they are simply marketed as Japanese cucumbers, there are dozens of cultivars, heirloom and hybrid, short and long with names such as Satsuki and Soyu.
