Persian cucumbers deliver a trifecta of qualities that set them apart from what we know as common garden cucumbers. Their skin is smooth, thin and perfectly textured, their flesh is crisp, sweet, succulent, and void of developed seeds. The perfect Persian cucumber measures 4 to 6 inches in length, as this is the size when it is at its peak of sweetness. If allowed to grow bigger, bitter tasting seeds can develop which compromises the cucumber's sweetness.
Persian cucumbers from Beylik Farms are available year-round.
Technically cucumbers are a fruit but are treated, eaten and thought of as a vegetable. Cucumbers have an amazing capacity to retain water and to remain cool. The interior flesh may be up to twenty degrees cooler than the exterior rind.
Although Persian cucumbers enjoy the classification as a burpless variety, their culinary utilities are much more versatile, as they can be treated as a slicer and even a pickling cucumber out of both choice and necessity. Thus, you can use Persian cucumbers in a multitude of applications to provide both textural and flavor qualities. Persian cucumbers can absorb other flavors quite quickly, which gives them the opportunity to act as a vehicle for spices in a short period of time. Consider using Persian cucumbers as a salad ingredient, for salsas and creamy dressings. They are a great cooling ingredient in hot dishes, make a perfect accoutrement to roasted fish and lamb, pair well with mint, chiles, mustard, cumin, citrus and fresh cheeses, such as chevre, feta and cotija.
