Who knows, maybe "reaction to asparagus" is one of those markers for ancestry

Sign me up as someone to whom cucumber tastes very strongly ("repeats" a lot too, I'm still tasting it several days after eating it); it gets diminished by curing it in salt, but I don't care enough about it to do that. And melon? My mother and one of my brothers can be swearing up and down that a certain melon is sweet as molasses, the other brother and I will be saying it tastes like raw cucumber and to kindly keep that thing away from us.
