The cucumber is a fruiting vegetable and grows on an annual plant that either creeps along the ground or climbs up a scaffold. The fruit grows very quickly and is harvested after about 40 days.
Did you know? …Cucumbers consist of about 97% water and should not be peeled because their few vitamin and mineral nutrients lie just under the skin. The unpopular foil keeps the cucumber from drying out and is therefore not an unnecessary packaging but a protection and thus counteracts food waste. At Llombart you can get cucumbers with or without foil.
Cucumbers can be stored in the vegetable compartment of the refrigerator for a few days. They do not like temperatures below 7°C.
