The highly anticipated return of DXB Cucumber Day - an annual celebration of the inimitable green fruit and its remarkable virtues - will cause consternation in financial markets across Dubai once again. This October, Hendrick’s are recognising the true value of the cucumber by transforming the humble green fruit into exchangeable monetary units in celebration of DXB Cucumber Day on October 10th.

Following last year’s successful exchange of the green of cash for the green of a cucumber, the famous drinks maker has partnered with Dubai haunts including Copper Dog, Barasti, Lucky Voice, Ramusake and Axe House to facilitate the unorthodox transaction once again. These bars will accept bona fide cucumbers of any species as currency – or “bar tender” – in exchange for a refreshing tipple during the dedicated day, in order to celebrate cucumbers.

Green-fingered fans across Dubai will unite to grow and initiate a bond with their own cucumbers in similarly peculiar ways to cultivate them in readiness for DXB Cucumber Day.

With more than 40 bars across Dubai accepting Cucumber Currency, watch this space for updates about who will be taking part.
