This week’s bag features Japanese Cucumbers! There are three varieties of cucumber: slicing, pickling, and burpless. Japanese cucumbers, or Kyuri, are burpless. This means they have a thinner skin and do not have developed seeds. They are sweeter than other cucumbers, with an almost melon-like flavor. Cucumbers contain 96% water and their flesh can be up to 20 degrees cooler than their skin, making it a very refreshing fruit for the summer! What else is in the bag?
