Look at these square cucumbers! Have you seen these before?
I recently found them at a local supermarket. It was only US $ 1.50 for 3 of them. I found that they are easier to peel and use for cooking than round ones.
Those kinds of special vegetables are called “incubated vegetables”. They are classed as partly organic cucumbers (the sprays don’t touch the vegetables).
Apparently, it takes a lot of effort to grow for farmers, because they need to put them individually in a certain place (arrangement, wrapper, padding etc), so they are 10-20% more expensive than regular types. However, these cucumbers stay fresh longer and often taste better.
