Thin skin; sweeter in flavor.
Despite their nomenclature, Persian Cucumbers are thought to have originated in India (and more than 3,000 years ago!) – they are, however, staples of Mediterranean cuisine. Small – four to six inches in length – sweet and seedless, these cukes feature skins that are so thin and delicate that they have the same great flavor and texture with or without the skins. The upside to that? No peeling required. Ever. The other upside? They’re commonly known as “burp less” cucumbers – that benefit is self-explanatory.
