Cucumber

There are different varieties of Cucumbers (pickling and slicing). Pickling cucumbers are smaller, can be long and short or cylindrical, and have thin, green skin which is ideal for pickling. Slicing cucumbers are large and cylindrical,

averaging 15-20 centimeters in length, and have thick skin. Slicing cucumbers are most commonly seen in the local market’s produce section and can range in color from dark green, to yellow or white. The inner flesh is light green with pale, edible seeds and has a crisp, aqueous texture and mild floral and grassy flavor.
