Indian Cucumber

In the forest below the Blackwater Dam in Webster, NH, John was searching for patridge berries and came across this Indian Cucumber. He has wanted to find the cucumber for quite a long time so that I could taste it. It is an unusual plant — a low pedestal base, a tall stalk and a crown of three leaves. The white root tastes cool, crisp and sweet.
