Other names:
Cuke or Gherkin

Nutrition:
The fresh cucumber is a very good source of the vitamin C and the mineral molybdenum. It is also a good source of vitamin A, potassium, manganese, folate, dietary fiber and magnesium. Cucumbers also contain compounds called sterols, which have been shown to lower cholesterol in animals. The heaviest concentration of sterols is in the skin of the cucumber, so you shouldn't remove the peel before eating.

Taste: 
A cucumber is mainly very watery and juicy and the seeds give it a hint of freshness.

Uses:
Cucumbers are mainly eaten raw in salads, sandwiches or as a garnish. Make sure to leave the skin on.

Storage:
Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Try to use within 5 days.
