Welcome. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I think if you're going to stick with just one veggie, it should be something more interesting that carrot or cucumber. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Hello.<br><br>
What do you mean by "strict veggie" BTW? Do you mean that you are a strict vegetarian? (you don't eat any animal products)<br><br>
Anyway, welcome aboard!<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Cucumber?</div>
</div>
<br>
Technically a cucumber is a fruit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Cucumbers are actually berries.<br>
Part of the Cucurbitaceae family. They're modified berries called "pepo" which have firm skins (rinds).<br><br>
I looked up the exact definition of what a berry was a few days ago because of a conversation I had with my brother about blackberries (possibly our favorite fruit, which happens to not be a berry -- it's an aggregated fruit).
