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.
