The cucumber vine has large leaves that form a canopy over the fruits. The fruit of typical cultivars of cucumber is roughly cylindrical, but elongated with tapered ends, and may be as large as 60 cm (24 in) long and 10 cm (3.9 in) in diameter They are mainly eaten in the unripe green form, since the ripe yellow form normally becomes bitter and sour. Pickled cucumbers are called "gherkins" or "wallies", the latter name being more common in the north of England and London, where it refers to the large vinegar-pickled cucumbers commonly sold in fish & chip shops.
Perfect for ... eating on it's own or with salad.
Place in plastic wrap and keep in the fridge. This minimises the amount of moisture on the cucumber, which slows the process of decay.
