The cucumber does not have to be washed before use. Remove the front and end part. Afterwards the cucumber can be consumed peeled or unpeeled in many different ways: Grated, sliced or diced or shaped with a special spoon into small beads. Be creative!

Buying and storage
What should I bear in mind when buying?
Only buy cucumbers that feel strong and have an impeccable glowing skin.
How do I store cucumbers?
The cucumber should be kept in a cool place (12 degrees Celsius) but not in the refrigerator, as that is too cold for the after-ripening. Well stored, you can keep the cucumber up to a week at least.
In a salad as slices or beads, along with tomato, onion, olives and feta
Dishes with curry
Grated in dipping sauces with garlic and Greek yoghurt
Slices on a toast with cheese and ham, egg and tomato
