A popular Asian vegetable that is typically eaten immature and tastes somewhere between a cucumber and okra, with a similar mouthfeel to okra.

Can have a bit of bitterness raw, but this is cooked away. Mature fruits have a red flesh that is sometimes substituted for tomatoes especially in certain African cuisines.
