World’s Largest Cucumber Comes Out of My Garden

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Oct 14, 2012


This is Patty with a cucumber that somehow escaped notice in my garden until it became The Vegetable That Ate Chicago.

It wouldn’t work in a salad. But I refused to throw it in the compost.

It made three pints of juice! It wasn’t really yummy, not gonna lie. Kinda bitter.

But, we made it when I was recovering from major oral surgery. It was a perfect way to bring the inflammation down and let those angry, insulted tissues heal.

    We call them cuke-zilla and I scream when I see them. They freak me out! They are kind of bitter when juiced though.
