This prickly, lumpy looking cucumber is actually a melon. Popular in Asian cuisine, the fruit is also used to help treat diabetes, cleanse the blood, and boost the immune system. It is considered the most bitter of all fruits and vegetables. It supports healthy digestion and is super high in vitamin C, containing over 100% of your minimum daily allowance.
