Plants Have Explosive Reproductive Abilities Too! Meet the Squirting Cucumber

The squirting cucumber or exploding cucumber (Ecballium elaterium) squirts a stream of liquid containing seeds. The cucumber is filled with a slimy juice as it ripens. The pressure build up increases to the point where it eventually bursts and releases its seed into the air followed by a trail of slime. The cucumber can shoot its seeds as far as twenty feet, with an average of twenty to forty seeds being released each time.
