Since cucumbers are 95 percent water, they help us replenish the fluids and minerals we lose on those sizzling hot July days.  While containing small amounts of vitamins A, C, and a few minerals, they are rich in vitamin E.  In addition to using as a snack, either sliced or whole, try it as a refreshing skin conditioner.  Try rubbing an end slice or inside peel on your face for an instant cooling effect.  Cucumbers should be stored unpeeled in the hydrator drawer of the refrigerator, for up to one week.

Did you know?

  • Cucumbers contain Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6, folic acid, Vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.
  • Even though it’s a fruit, cucumber is often perceived, prepared and eaten as a vegetable.
  • Cucumbers can cure bad breath. A slice pressed to the roof of your mouth for 30 seconds with your tongue allows the phytochemicals to kill the bad bacteria.
  • There can be a 20 degree difference between the inside of a cucumber and the actual temperature outside. This is thought to be where the phrase, “cool as a cucumber”, came from.
  • About 96% of the content of a cucumber is water. They are a tasty and refreshing source of hydration.
  • Cucumbers originated in India over 3000 years ago. Nowadays China is the world’s largest grower of cucumbers, producing over three quarters of the planet’s cucumbers. The total weight of all of the cucumbers produced by China each year is about 55 million tons
  • Placing a slice of cool cucumber on each eye for a few minutes can reduce the puffiness.
  • Pahl Farms grows approximately 40 acres of cucumbers annually.
  • Florida is by far the leading producing state for all types of fresh cucumbers; whereas Michigan is the leading state producing cucumber varieties best suited for pickling. There are more cucumber varieties grown for pickle production, than for all combined fresh markets.
