Cucumber, English Seedless Burpless

Cucumber, English Seedless Burpless
(Cucumber, English Seedless Burpless) This dark green, thin-skinned cucumber is usually sold unwaxed and wrapped in an airtight plastic wrap. The are often sold as English Cucumbers, Seedless Cucumbers, Burpless Cucumbers, and even Greenhouse or Hothouse Cucumbers; however, they do have seeds but they are undeveloped similar to the seeds in a seedless watermelons. English cucumbers do not need to be peeled; just slice them raw on a salad or eat as a snack, and are milder in flavor. They are generally about 12 inches long and about 1 inch in diameter, which is partly do to the growing process of having the cucumbers grow on trellises where gravity helps keep the fruit long and narrow. They are generally about twice the price of the regular supermarket variety. We could not find any detailed nutritional information for this variety of cucumber.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
