Kekiri, technically classified as a cucumber is much harder and less sweet than cucumber cultivated in the West and research suggests the variety is more closely related to the melon. Due to its high heat tolerance and keeping time, kekiri is a stand-out variety for growing in dry subtropical and Mediterranean zones. Most of the fruits are orange when mature and have jagged whitish stripes, and are used for cooking.
