To preserve cucumbers for longer, you need to know how to choose the best ones. So OneHowTo recommends choosing firm, dark green cucumbers. Moreover, remember that large cucumbers often have a bitter taste and a softer texture.
In terms of how long cucumbers can be preserved for, this vegetable can last up to a week in the fridge. But do not forget to wrap it up correctly in a special plastic food bag or airtight container. In this way you avoid cucumbers absorbing the flavor of other food in the fridge and you guarantee that they'll always be kept in perfect condition.
Another good idea may be to use kitchen paper towels to wrap and preserve the cucumbers in perfect condition for longer in your fridge but never in the freezer. The paper helps cucumbers to stay fresher for up to a week.
