Persian cucumbers should not be confused with English cucumbers. Both varieties have thin skins that do not have to be peeled. They are grown in a controlled environment in large, commercial-growing greenhouse facilities. They can be used interchangeably in recipes.

Persian cucumbers are baby cucumbers that grow about 5 inches long. They are nearly seedless and have more crispness than regular cucumbers. They are often sold in packages of six or more.
