Do hot house cucumbers have seeds?
Accordingly, which cucumbers are seedless?
The most commonly found varieties at most markets are the English cucumbers, pickling cucumbers and the regular slicer cucumber we use most often in our dishes. English cucumbers, sometimes called seedless or hothouse cucumbers, are often longer and wrapped in plastic.
One may also ask, do hothouse cucumbers have seeds? English (or hothouse) cucumbers are long, narrow and are sold wrapped in plastic to protect their thinner, unwaxed skin. English cucumbers are sometimes billed as seedless but the truth is they do have seeds. They're just smaller and thinner than regular cucumber seeds so you can chew right through them.
Considering this, what is the difference between regular cucumbers and English cucumbers?
An English cucumber is generally sweeter than the regular, common cucumber which has many large seeds, contributing to their bitter flavor. The skin is thinner than a slicing cucumber and therefore doesn't need to be peeled.
Are seedless cucumbers good for you?
They are low in calories but contain many important vitamins and minerals, as well as a high water content. Eating cucumbers may lead to many potential health benefits, including weight loss, balanced hydration, digestive regularity and lower blood sugar levels.
