Last of the fall colors on the Red Cedar State Trail.


Wild Cucumber Vine

In the last few years I’ve become more aware of the Wild Cucumber. It seems to be growing almost everywhere along trails and roads. ┬áThe Wild Cucumber starts out as a white flower on a vine that likes to climb fences and trees.

By early fall the cucumber has formed and you can find it hanging on the vines. Given the large numbers of them found it would be great if they were edible but unfortunately they are not.

In the fall and winter the cucumbers will dry out leaving only a shell of its former self. I found this cucumber early in the spring and photographed it.
