The leaves really do taste like cucumber! Don't eat the stems though, they're bitter. I love this herb on my banh mi sandwiches. I have some in part shade and some in full sun. They're growing well in both locations.

I love using the leaves in salads that come from my garden. I first planted one in the fall of 2006 and now, this summer of 2008, I have 3 of them. Two volunteered near a bird bath where I suspect they enjoy extra drinks. I've kept the first plant on the dry side and it doesn't seem to mind. I harvest the leaves often because I love the cucumber taste.
