Square Cucumbers

Square Cucumbers1

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.

  1. I haven’s seen a square watermelon yet though it seems ridiculously expensive. It’s better to be tasty. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Grace, thank you. How do you survive without having Korean food? I don’t last more than 2 days. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. I really enjoy your food blog. I am Korean and live in California but I’ve never really tried to make Korean food until now. Your site has inspired me to start cooking Korean food. Thank you!
