Organic Cucumber

£1.95

Description

Commonly thought of as a vegetable, the cucumber is actually a fruit! Sliced or grated they add a crisp fresh taste to salads and sandwiches. Best eaten unpeeled. There’s nothing quite as cool as a cucumber!

Wash before eating.

* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.

Health benefits

Low in calories but high in many vitamins and minerals. Cucumbers contain a good amount of water and soluble fiber, making them ideal for promoting hydration and aiding in weight loss. They are good sources of phytonutrients which have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits. Cucumbers should be eaten unpeeled to maximise their nutritional content. Peeling them reduces the amount of fiber, as well as certain vitamins and minerals.
