Feggous (pronounced "fe-goos") is the Moroccan Arabic word for an Armenian cucumber. Although its appearance is a bit like a long, skinny zucchini, feggous tastes like a cucumber and is technically a melon. Some feggous grow straight, while others mature with a pronounced curve.
Other names for the Armenian cucumber include snake cucumber (do not confuse this with snake gourd), snake melon, yard-long cucumber, fakkous and uri. These long, thin cucumbers are mild, crispy, and don't need to be peeled or seeded, making them ideal for eating raw or in salads.
