Cucumbers - greenhouse

We grow greenhouse varieties of cucumbers that are known for their sweet flavour, thin-skin, and seedless qualities.  Cucumbers are a perfect summer food that are good to eat on their own with a splash of sea salt, or in your favorite greek salad, tzatziki or naturally flavoured water.


Nutrition:  Cucumbers are a highly alkalizing and hydrating food that are rich in nutrients such as beta-carotene, vitamins C, K, and minerals such as magnesium, silicon, and potassium. Cucumbers are also packed with antioxidants and enzymes which help to digest proteins and destroy parasites. The high chlorophyll and lignan content in the cucumber skin makes it a great anti-cancer food. The high fiber content of cucumbers makes it an excellent remedy for constipation by adding bulk and hydration directly to the colon. Cucumbers are also one of the best diuretics, aiding in the excretion of wastes through the kidneys and helping dissolve uric acid accumulations. Their high silica content promotes strong and healthy hair and nails which has earned them the reputation as being a beautifying food.
