Hothouse cucumbers are grown in a hothouse under artificial light, rather than in the field. Thus, the name “hothouse cucumbers.” These cucumbers differ from the field or table variety—they’re known for their elongated, thin, round shape. They have a thinner skin and have a sweeter flavor than those grown in the field. Hothouse cucumbers are burpless and are packed with Vitamins A, C, K and potassium. They can be used in a variety of ways and recipes—everything from used raw for salads and dips, to cooked, grilled and or as a side dish for fish, meat or poultry.
