This little guy is very similar to the regular cucumbers you're probably used to eating, but is a tiny bit sweeter and much smaller! Persian cucumbers - believed to have originated in India and not Persia - measure about 4 to 6 inches in length with smooth skin and a succulent flavor. Nutritionally, they're about the same, very high in dietary fiber and vitamins A and C. If you haven't already, try them in your NutriBlasts! They're the perfect size and add an unexpectedly refreshing flavor.
Persian cucumbers are available year round in most grocery stores. Look for cucumbers that are bright green in color and that contain no bruises or soft spots.
