In the food box this week: tomatoes and a surprise

Here are a couple of photos of some of the lovely fresh stuff we received this week in our food box.

Some tasty, mixed tomatoes:

And this intriguing wee thing, which was about the size of a small lemon, though appeared melon like.

This is one of the really exciting parts of our fruit and veg boxes – trying new things. We cut it open and found it to be most undoubtedly a cucumber.

Turns out it’s a ‘lemon cucumber’, named after its appearance. I read that they have crunchier skin (yep), and tend to be sweeter than the standard cucumber. I don’t know if I agree about the sweetness, as we have had some incredibly tasty and sweet cucumbers in the past. But it was great to scoff down regardless.
