Buying Cucumbers

Look for:
cucumbers that are firm and well shaped with a dark green color. Cucumbers should be heavy for their size.

Avoid:
cucumbers that are soft and light for their size or have shriveled ends. Oddly shaped cucumbers could taste bitter.

Seasonality: Late spring and summer

Storing Cucumbers

Refrigerate cucumbers in a plastic bag for up to 1 week.

Preparing Cucumbers

Scrub cucumbers under running water. Peel any non-organic cucumbers as they usually are coated in wax.
