About English cucumbers

English cucumbers are a delicious addition to several snacks, sides, and main dishes. They are also known as European cucumbers, hothouse cucumbers, and gourmet cucumbers. These veggies are a part of the Cucurbitaceae family of plants, including squash and different kinds of melons. In general, cucumbers are categorized based on their suitability for slicing or pickling. A European cucumber is a slicing cucumber, which can be washed, sliced, and eaten fresh or cooked. 

Visually, this vegetable is an intense green. It's slimmer than other popular slicing cucumbers, and its edible skin is relatively more fragile. Typically, it's consumed with its peel. A hothouse cucumber has very small, soft seeds that are not as bitter as those of other cucumbers. As its seeds are easy to overlook, you can eat this vegetable without removing them. English cucumbers have a crunchy, refreshing, and mild taste.
