Conventional English Cucumber 

Enjoy the fresh, crisp, delicious flavor of English Cucumber. Packed with nutritional benefits such as being naturally low in calories, carbohydrates, sodium, fat, and cholesterol, cucumbers also provide potassium, fiber, and vitamin C and clock in at a cool 16 calories per cup.

English cucumbers are long, narrow and are sold wrapped in plastic to protect their thinner, unwaxed skin. English cucumbers are often sold as seedless because in truth their seeds are so tiny and few. They're just smaller and thinner than regular cucumber seeds so they're not bothersome like common cucumbers.

Use this cucumber to make healthy treats such as a cucumber salad with tomatoes and onions in a vinaigrette dressing, toss with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, mix diced cucumbers with Greek yogurt, lemon, dill, and garlic for a refreshing tzatziki sauce for gyros or veggies, add to a crisp, fresh veggie salad, or thinly slice and add to a vinegar brine for quick pickles. Any way you slice, dice, or spiralize them, English Cucumber is a refreshing, healthy addition to any meal.

English cucumbers, Cucumis sativus, were actually bred to create a cucumber without some of the more undesirable characteristics that this vegetable has, such as a tough outer skin, large seeds, and a bitter taste. They are also known as hothouse cucumber, burpless cucumber, seedless cucumber, and European cucumber.
