What is the difference between pickling, slicing, and burpless cucumbers?

  1. 1
    Pickling cucumbers.
    Pickling cucumber - ermin.jpg
    Pickling cucumbers are used to ferment or, as the name implies, to pickle. These cucumbers are put into a jar with salt water (brine) or vinegar for a long time. In the United States and Canada, people use cucumbers to pickle, and these can be stored for long periods, due to their shelf life. Pickling cucumbers are distinguished by their appearance. They are irregularly shaped with bumpy skin. They are thicker, and shorter than slicing cucumbers. Although slicing cucumbers can also be used for pickling, the pickling cucumbers are better for pickling. These cucumbers can be eaten fresh, as well.

    Slicing cucumbers.
    Slicing cucumber-ermin.jpg
    These cucumbers can be eaten fresh, and that is why they are called slicing cucumbers. Once they are mature, you can slice them into pieces and eat them as is, or use them in salads and other recipes. If slicing cucumbers are eaten when unripe, they'll taste slightly sour and bitter compared to ripe ones. You can distinguish a ripe slicing cucumber when it looks yellow. The unripe cucumber looks green. In North America, where cucumbers are commercially grown, slicing cucumbers are longer and smoother on the surface, but have tough or thick skin. They are mainly used for adding taste to salads, sandwiches, and soups.

    Burpless cucumber - ermin.jpg
    These cucumbers are mainly slicing cucumbers. They can be eaten fresh or added to salads, sandwiches, soups, etc. However, the burpless cucumbers are almost seedless and have thinner skin, unlike other cucumbers, which have seeds and thicker skin. The seeds and thick skin of cucumbers can cause flatulence, but burpless cucumbers do not. Burpless cucumbers are actually bred to make them less bitter, so they taste sweeter than other varieties.

Types of Cucumbers:

  1. 1
    English cucumbers.
    These cucumbers are also called as hothouse cucumbers. They are long and slightly thin with dark green and thin skin. English cucumbers are easy to peel, as the skin is not very thick, unlike other types of cucumbers. In addition, they only have minimal seeds and taste sweeter. English cucumbers are burpless cucumbers, so these do not cause flatulence when eaten fresh. Most chefs prefer English cucumbers, although they are a bit more expensive.

    Garden cucumbers.
    In North America, garden cucumbers are most common. They have smooth, green skin. You will see these mostly in grocery stores, and they are usually waxed to maintain their moisture. That is why you need to peel them before using. At farmer markets, you can see un-waxed garden cucumbers, but this does not mean you don't need to peel them. Garden cucumbers have thick skin with a bitterness you might not want to include in your dishes, so it's best to peel them, as consuming the skins can cause flatulence.

    Armenian cucumbers.
    Armenian cucumbers are variegated, meaning they have a pattern of different shades from dark and light yellowish-green or just light green to dark green. They are slicing cucumbers, so you can eat them fresh and raw. They have thin skin with minimal seeds, so you don't have to peel them. These are not ideal cucumbers for pickling, but they can be used in salads, sandwiches, etc.
