IN SEASON - July, August, September
Cucumbers are scientifically known as Cucumis sativus and belong to the same family as watermelon, zucchini, pumpkin, and other types of squash.
Wrap cucumbers in moist towel in refrigerator for up to one week. If planning on eating them within a day or two after buying them, they should be fine left out in a cool room.
Refreshing! Cucumbers have a 95% water content--nearly as thirst quenching as a glass of water. Great in any salad, a salad of its own, or chilled soup.
