    Hi Kelsie, So far nobody has tried to grow cucumbers in space! Lettuce, tomatoes, wheat, soybeans, onions, and other plants have all been grown in space, though!

    Actually, cucumbers may not taste the same in space. If you go to http://www.nasa.gov/audience/foreducators/k-4/features/F_A_Matter_of_Taste.html you will find a discussion on how astronauts think things taste different in space.
