It's often said that an apple a day is the best way to keep the doctor away, but what about a cucumber? We think you’ll find that the answer is delightfully peculiar.

This October, DXB Cucumber Day is back with a bewildering bang – and it's going to be the most exciting of extravaganzas.

Green-fingered fans across the city will have their thirsts whetted with a complimentary Hendrick's libation on Wednesday October 10.

On that very day, the cucumber will be transformed into an exchangeable monetary unit, with bars and other outlets across the city accepting them as currency.

A bus tour will take you and your humble cucumber on a wondrous adventure around all these locations so you can exchange it for a drink.

And you won't find another beverage that tastes like this, because no other is made like this.

It’s infused with the remarkable Bulgarian Rosa Damascena and specially selected cucumbers from the finest of producers.

The particularly botanical beverage is handcrafted in Scotland in tiny batches of just 500 litres at a time.

Hendrick's is welcoming those with a shared disposition for the curious cucumber to delight in the wondrous possibilities that this special day has to offer.

All you have to do is get growing and show your love for the humble fruit over the next two months. (Yes, that's right. This is no vegetable. After all, it grows on a herbaceous plant.)

Keep an eye on TimeOutDubai.com to find out more about participating bars, outlets and the Cucumber Bus tour - as well as @dxbcucumberday on Facebook and @timeoutdubai and for daily Cucumber Chronicles, starting in mid-September.
