Organic Cucumbers

With a cool, crunchy texture, Organic Cucumbers are great for salads, sandwiches, refrigerator pickling, snacking and dipping. Doesn’t a Quick Pickled Cucumber Salad sound tangy, crisp and refreshing? Excellent for juicing, Cucumbers have anti-inflammatory and detoxifying properties (so I hear, but I’m not a nutritionist), plus they add plenty of liquid volume to juice blends.

If you desire a milder Cucumber without seeds that has a more tender skin – Organically grown European-style Seedless Cucumbers (aka English Cucumbers) are in season from Mexico and Holland greenhouses. They come individually wrapped and are more expensive by the each, but the Seedless Cucumbers are longer and 100% usable with no peeling needed.

Cucumber Tips

  • Choose Cucumbers that feel firm and have no sunken areas. Store them at room temperature for a couple days or in the crisper of your refrigerator.
  • Peeling? The bitter taste some people dislike in regular salad-type Cucumbers is found in the skin. For a more mild flavor, peel off some or all of the skin. Mature cucumber seeds can sometimes be bitter too, so taste the cucumber first and decide if you need to peel or de-seed it.
