  2. I've only eaten it cooked and I think it doesn't taste like cucumber at all. It does belong to the same family as the cucumber though, the Cucurbitaceae. :-)

  4. Não faço idéia Alexandra. Sim, e é sempre muito engraçado ver a reacção dos amigos quando os vêm explodir pela primeira vez no entanto deve ter-se algum cuidado em proteger os olhos.
