I gave my piggies a couple of slices of something my dad grew in the garden but didn't want, it is basically like a cucumber but it's yellow and has bigger, wetter seeds in the middle. I think he called it an outside cucumber :confused: I gave them some as I figured it was basically the same as cucumber so would be okay.
Does anyone know what it's proper name is, and how often I can feed it? Thanks!

Yellow Squash maybe? If yes, according to the charts stickied says, 2-4 times a week.

Yellow zucchini? https://static.flickr.com/47/185846824_40610d230a_o.jpg Which is technically a type of squash. There's tons of yellow colored squashes. Although I don't see how there could be outside and inside cucumbers. lol Cucumbers are grown outdoors just like all the squashes.

I used to grow vegetables, and there are many different varieties of cucumber, most are green, though some are white, and some are yellow. There was a yellow variety I used to grow called a Lemon Cucumber, but they were more round-shaped than most cucumber types. And Lemon Cukes are an unusual heirloom, as I enjoyed growing heirloom veggies. Though they tasted just like a regular cucumber. I don't think there's such a thing as an outside cucumber, because as aqh88 said, they are all grown outdoors. Look at the squash photos that the people before me posted, perhaps it was some type of yellow squash.

Hope you figure out what it is!
