Thanks for that prompt detailed reply, once again. I wouldn’t believe my neighbour who said that they were cucumbers and not zucchini. Do you eat it as a salad like ordinary English cucumber? So, how does one obtain a cutting? Would the reply you gave re zucchini apply as well? I’ll have to visit my neighbour and speak very nicely to her. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kind regards Bronwyn

They are very closely related, and will have similar care. It would be the same for the cuttings. It is like the zucchini in that cuttings are very hard to root. Those seeds will likely come back the same though. Those are less likely to breed out, therefore the seeds usually remain stable. All you will have to do in this case, and ask for a few of those seeds from the fruit.
As for how to use them... They are used just like any other cucumber. You may treat them as such, although they are quite different then their English counterpart.
