Cool as a cucumber! The expression fits because the cucumber is extremely refreshing. During heat waves, while everything becomes very hot to the touch, the cucumber stays cool. Even when in direct sunlight, its internal temperature is 9°F to 13°F (6°C to 8°C) lower than room temperature. It is composed of 95% water, so it’s an interesting ingredient for those who are watching their weight.
