Cucumbers and Kilayim



Since I’m not an expert in botany nor am I a Kilayim expert, I’m trying to find out if cucumbers are okay to splice together, or are they two different minim and therefore not permitted for a Jew to create a new type through grafting. Thank you



  1. As far as I could ascertain, all cucumbers belong to the same family, and there is no issue of kilayim. However, if you wish to be absolutely certain, I would suggest that you ask an Orthodox botanist.
