About cucumbers

Cucumbers are a fascinating piece of produce. Technically a fruit but treated as a vegetable, cucumbers thrive in tropical and temperate conditions all around the world. Persian cucumbers are one of the most delicious and versatile cucumber varieties. You needn't travel to the Middle East to find them, though. Shop for Persian cucumbers via Instacart and have these exotic treats delivered to your door in as little as 2 hours!

You'll recognize Persian cucumbers by their squat, cylindrical shape. They measure roughly four to six inches and have very few seeds. As their dark green skin is thin, you can eat them with the skin or peel them. They taste sweet and have an appealing crunchy texture.

You can snack on cucumbers as they are or use them as an ingredient in the following ways:
  • Sliced raw through a salad.
  • Raw and chopped finely in a salsa.
  • Added to sushi rolls.
  • Cooked into a stir fry.
  • Pickled and used as a garnish or side dish.

FAQs About Persian Cucumbers

Persian cucumbers are sweeter than many other cucumber varieties, which can taste a little bitter or bland and watery. They are also classed as a seedless cucumber variety which makes them easy to digest. As cucumber seeds give some people gas, Persian cucumbers are sometimes called “burpless” cucumbers. They are also one of only a handful of cucumbers with edible skin.

Once you receive your delivery through Instacart, remove your Persian cucumbers from their packaging. Our packaging prevents bruising in transit, but packaging can hold moisture which accelerates spoilage. Persian cucumbers are best kept in cool, dry conditions, so keep your cucumbers out of the fridge if possible. Keep them away from other foods that emit ethylene gas which speeds up spoilage, such as bananas or tomatoes, and they should last a week.

If you don't have any suitable space outside the fridge, you can refrigerate Persian cucumbers. However, they will only stay their best for a few days, so plan to eat them quickly. Wrap them in paper towels and store them in the warmest parts of the fridge, such as the refrigerator door or towards the front of a shelf or crisper drawer.
