“Cool as a cucumber”" isn’t just a catchy phrase. The inner temperature of a cucumber can be up to 20 degrees cooler than the outside air. No wonder these are such a summertime favorite!
The flavor comes from their seeds. Medium-sized cucumbers with soft small seeds have better flavor.
Varieties: Armenian, Japanese, Lemon and Pickling.
