FAQs about Japanese cucumbers
If you can't find Japanese cucumbers, look for a variety that has a firm texture and few seeds. A good choice is the Persian cucumber, but English cucumbers are also usable. These look similar to Japanese cucumbers and often come wrapped tightly in thin plastic. English cucumbers have more seeds than the Japanese version, and they work well in cucumber salads and sliced in tossed salads. The seeds are edible, but depending on the dish, you might want to remove them with a spoon.
Japanese cucumbers will last for several days in the refrigerator as long as they are wrapped in a paper towel and then put in a plastic bag. Make sure to keep them away from other fruits such as melon or bananas. Japanese cucumbers, just like other cucumbers, are highly sensitive to the ethylene in these fruits, which speeds up the deterioration and causes them to turn yellow and lose their flavor.
Make sure to dry your Japanese cucumbers thoroughly before storing them. If there is excess water on the skin, it will encourage spoiling. If stored properly, they will last for about a week without being cut. Once cut, make sure to wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and use it within a couple of days.
