Sweet cucumber

Westerners like cucumbers. They are not scary. New food is fun but not if it is too new.

Cucumbers are in the melon family. Cantaloupes and cucumbers can naturally hybridize. I propose that such a hybrid be backbred such that it has the look and texture and edible seeds of a cucumber, but the sweetness of a cantaloupe.

       Baked - African horned cucumber. It wasn't produced in the way you suggest, and it is spiky, but it is sweet.

       I grew a batch of unintentional squashcumbers once. Fit only for scaring children and burglars with.
