Living a healthy lifestyle is a goal that many people aspire to, but the reality is that it can be challenging to maintain. Busy schedules, tempting unhealthy snacks, and limited options can make it difficult to stick to healthy habits. By incorporating versatile ingredients like fresh greenhouse grown cucumbers in your daily routine, you can refresh and rehydrate both on the go and at every meal.
Cucumbers are a fantastic addition to any meal or snack, offering both flavor and nutrition. Their range of sizes and varieties make them a great choice for all your culinary needs, from crisp salads to refreshing sandwiches and every light snack you can squeeze into your busy schedule. Plus, they’re guaranteed to give you a much-needed boost of hydration just when you need it most!
As with all fresh produce, the quality of the cucumbers you buy makes a big difference in terms of flavor, texture, and nutritional value. When you’re looking for fresh cucumbers at the grocery store, it’s important to choose products that are grown in a sustainable and healthy way. That’s where Pure Flavor’s® state-of-the-art greenhouses come in.
Originally grown in South Asia, cucumbers can now be found growing on all continents. Although we love them as tasty vegetables, they’re botanically classified as a pepo or botanical berry. Because these “berries” are grown on a creeping vine plant, they’re perfectly suited for our greenhouses, where they grow vertically over forty feet tall!
The advanced technology inside each greenhouse allows expert growers to optimize the plant’s development by controlling temperature, light, humidity, and other factors. This results in a more consistent and high-quality crop that is available year-round so that you never have to worry about running out of fresh and delicious cucumbers, no matter the season.
We’re committed to providing families with more choices when it comes to fresh, high-quality cucumbers. That’s why Pure Flavor® grows both conventional and USDA-certified organic greenhouse cucumbers. With so many great options to choose from, you’ll be ready to fuel up your healthy lifestyle in a way that works best for you.
Long English Cucumbers are a classic variety and are great for all kinds of recipes due to their light flavor and juicy texture. They are perfect for slicing and adding to your favorite salad without any more prep work required! You can also try them in delicious and healthy dishes like this Savory Cucumber Yogurt Bowl recipe. With endless possibilities, Long English Cucumbers are a staple in any healthy diet.
Mini Cucumbers may seem like just another type of cucumber, but they offer their own unique qualities that make them stand out as a favorite in most households. These medium-sized cucumbers have a milder flavor and a bit more crunch. They are a good option for salads where texture is key, like a Mediterranean-inspired Cucumber Feta Salad. Plus, they can be easily sliced and diced for new and exciting appetizers like Cucumber Shrimp Cocktail or Buffalo Stuffed Mini Cucumbers.
