How to Pick Fresh Cucumbers
When shopping for cucumbers, you want to pick the freshest and highest quality cucumbers available – but how do you know which cucumbers are the freshest? Greenhouse grown cucumbers are picked right before shipping to your local produce aisle, so look for the words “Greenhouse Grown,” a marker of consistency and quality.
All cucumbers should always be a vibrant, consistent green color. Do not pick cucumbers with long streaks of yellow, which can indicate that they are not perfectly ripe.
Choose cucumbers that are firm – not soft, but not stiff either.
Greenhouse grown cucumbers are available 365 days a year with the same consistent quality in flavor, texture, and color. Look for the little logo that says “Greenhouse Grown” in every season.
Always inspect packs to make sure they’re properly sealed and product inside is consistent.
