Meaning and Description

This is a cucumber, which is a long, green fruit with bumpy skin and crunchy flesh. It looks like a whole cucumber on most platforms, except on Apple and WhatsApp, which show it sliced into light-green pieces, exposing its flesh.

Cucumbers are native to India and were brought to Europe by the Greeks and Romans, who valued them for their refreshing and medicinal properties. Contrary to what most people believe, cucumbers are indeed fruits, not vegetables! Cucumbers are now grown and consumed in many cuisines around the world, especially in salads, sandwiches, soups, and pickles.

One of the most famous historical figures who loved cucumbers was the Roman emperor Tiberius, who reportedly ate them twice a day and had them grown year-round in his gardens. He preferred small cucumbers, similar to gherkins, which are the model for the cucumber emoji today.

The cucumber emoji is versatile in its usage. Naturally, it finds a place in conversations about cucumbers and food with cucumber as one of the ingredients, such as salads, sushi rolls, or fruit and vegetable juices.

You might also see this emoji in posts related to beauty and skin care, because putting cucumber slices on the face is a popular way to take care of skin, although there seems to be no scientific basis for this practice.

Due to its shape, this emoji can also be used as a euphemism for a penis or an erection to imply sexual innuendo or flirtation, akin to the usage of the eggplant emoji and the banan emoji.
