We present the smallest cucumber of all: it’s about 7-8 cm long. Snack cucumbers have smooth and thin skin, and there is no need to spend time on preparation – these are usually eaten whole to snack.
More and more, snack cucumbers can be found in supermarkets. They are usually packaged in eye-catching formats and are an excellent snack for an aperitif. They are also a perfect snack for the little ones because cucumbers have a sweet flavour. Without a doubt, they are a fun and original way to eat vegetables.
In addition to all these benefits, they are easy to carry in your bag or backpack and are a perfect snack for work. They also go well with salad or can be served as an accompaniment to dinner. Ideally, they should be kept in a cool, dry place, at around 12 °C. Preferably, do not keep it in the fridge, as it would alter the ripening process.
