    Quick — complete this phrase: Cool as a ____. If you thought cucumber, you are probably in the majority, but exactly what does that phrase mean? Well, let’s consider the cucumber in culinary terms: it offers a refreshing, palate-cleansing astringency that “cools” the mouth after a bite of spicy food. The cucumber is thought to have originated in Thailand or India, where its mild, crisp flavor is a perfect foil for curries and other foods from those countries. For pupus, cucumbers can be cool “platforms” for a variety of toppings. Slicing them into pitchers of water, or juicing into smoothies are other ways they can refresh.

    Small flowering trees make lovely additions to landscapes in Hawaii. Though we have many choices, a few have characteristics that recommend them for multiple uses by Kona gardeners. The rose jatropha is one that can serve as a lovely single specimen, as well as grouped attractively in an informal hedge or screen, and it also grows well in a pot. Because this plant produces rose-colored flowers year-round, it will always attract attention regardless of its use or location.
