English cucumbers are very crisp because their seed cavity is small and undeveloped compared to other cucumbers.
Cucumbers are low in calories but high in many important vitamins and minerals. It aids in weight loss, lowers blood sugar and promotes regularity.
There are just 16 calories in a cup of cucumber with its peel (15 without). You will get about 4 percent of your daily potassium, 3 percent of your daily fiber and 4 percent of your daily vitamin C. They also provide small amounts of vitamin K, vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, manganese and vitamin A.
Store them toward the middle of the fridge, as it is often too cold at the bottom. And keep them toward the front of the fridge as it is also colder at the back of the fridge. Stored this way, fresh whole cucumbers can last around 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator, though it is best to use them as soon as possible.
