What’s the Difference Between English Cucumbers and Regular Cucumbers?

English cucumbers are the long, skinny variety sold in plastic wrap. “Common” cucumbers with dark green, waxy rinds belong to the Persian or Kirby cucumber variety.

Common cucumbers are inexpensive and a very popular choice when shopping for cucumbers. The skin is thicker than their English counterparts and is also waxed. These days, they are often sold seedless or nearly seedless, since common cucumbers can contain unpleasant seeds. With today’s modern farming techniques, it is difficult to find common cucumbers with large seeds in the United States.

English cucumbers have thinner skins and smaller seeds than regular cucumbers. Cucumbers themselves are also sweeter. While English cucumbers are more expensive than regular cucumbers, they tend to yield more pleasing results for cucumber-based recipes.

Is cucumber peel edible?

Yes! Cucumber peels are high in dietary fiber, which is always good for you. If you find the rind to be tough or bitter, you can always try peeling only half of the rind, leaving streaks of the rind along the length of the cucumber. Not only is this pretty, it also softens the effects of any hard or bitter skin while still allowing you to benefit from the extra fiber.
