Cucumbers originated in India and Egypt and were very popular with the Greeks and Romans. Columbus brought them to the Americas when he planted them in his experimental garden in 1493. Cucumbers are known as the best natural diuretic, and they contain a great amount of silicon, which is important for calcium absorption. They are also high in many vitamins and minerals.
