A Persian cucumber is a short cucumber with a mild taste. It has a real crunch to it.
Persian cucumbers should have a bright green skin tone with even coloring. The cucumber should be firm. Avoid any cucumbers that have blemishes or yellowing. Put cucumbers on the counter, not in the fridge. Do not store near fruit as it will cause them to yellow quicker.
These cucumbers should be washed with water. You can eat them plain, even the skin. You can slice and then bread them light. Fry these for some cucumber chips! They also go great on sandwiches.
