Like the courgette, the cucumber is a member of the gourd family.
In Germany, there are two main groups to choose from: Salad cucumbers and gherkins.
Salad cucumber is a particular favourite of hobby gardeners – a sunny location with not too much wind and plenty of water will ensure that the cucumbers develop their wonderfully aromatic and fine taste.
Ripe cucumbers have a smooth, rich green skin and firm flesh when lightly squeezed. Properly stored in the vegetable drawer of your fridge, cucumbers can be kept for one to two weeks.
Fresh cucumbers are a wonderfully fresh tasting addition to salads, soups, and traditional tzatziki. Our Exquisa Creation garden vegetables contain choice cucumbers that lend it its incomparably fresh taste.
