Any one living plastic-free knows that naked cucumbers are hard to find. The plastic coating makes them last longer, giving shops more time to sell them. Useful when you are importing from abroad, rubbish if you hate plastic.

You are more likely to find them unwrapped in Summer making them a seasonal treat. I have seen them in the veg shop on the causeway head Penzance AND in the supermarket in St Agnes.


Mini Cukes

If you don’t want a huge beast of a cucumber then your best bet is to try foreign food shops. asian shops almost always sell them unwrapped.

Back in Huddersfield, Khadims sells on Blacker Road sells them.

Also The Hut, the Polish deli on wood street.

BLOG STATS As of 01.29.2017 onward have been counting the number people who have read each post. WHY CUT PLASTIC About 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year and much of it is used to make one-use, disposable items. Because plastic doesn't biodegrade these items, though only used for moments can last for decades, centuries, possibly forever. We are creating ever lasting rubbish in unsustainable amounts. It is polluting the environment, maiming even killing animals, poisoning fish and may be poisoning us.
