How to choose Cucumbers :

  • Choose cucumbers that are even and dark green in color.
  • They should be firm, not soft to touch or bend.
  • Avoid the ones that are wrinkled ,blemished or if they have soft spots on them.
  • Size matters! The smaller the cucumber, the tastier & crispier it is. It also has smaller seeds .

How to store Cucumbers :

  • Wrap them loosely in a plastic wrap and store in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator.
  • Do not store them near tomatoes, melons or bananas as this will cause the cucumber to ripen fast and turn yellow.
