Armenian Cucumbers aka The Kim Kardashian of Cucumbers

Isn’t this the most unusual cucumber? If it were a person it would definitely be Kim Kardashian. First of all it’s Armenian. Secondly it has the sexiest curves I’ve ever seen. Yes, vegetables can be sexy.

Anytime I see something new or different I always have to give it a try. I thought it would be fun to share my experience with new foods so I’m starting with the Armenian Cucumber. I found this new food while perusing my local farmer’s market. It’s got very small seeds and a very thin skin, both of which are totally edible. I was thrilled about that because it means less work. No need to peel or scoop out the seeds before preparing it. It tasted slightly different than regular cucumber. It tasted like a cross between a honeydew melon and a Persian cucumber.

 

Have you tried Armenian Cucumbers? What do you think?
