Abstract

The finding of a wild Cucumber in the forest, as well as primitive cucumbers cultivated by the Karen hill-tribes in NW Thailand, allowed for a more accurate description of the wild ancestor of the cultivated Cucumis sativus L. (Cucurbitaceae). A modern description of the wild form, forma hardwickii (Royle) W.J. de Wilde & Duyfjes is provided, as well as some corollary notes including remarks on the morphology of the ovary and the stigma in the genus Cucumis.
