THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ENGLISH CUCUMBER AND REGULAR CUCUMBER

So, the English cucumber used in this recipe is the same variety you’ll find wrapped in plastic wrap at the store. They don’t have a waxy coating so there’s no need to peel them and the seeds are digestible so you won’t have to scoop them out.

Regular cucumbers have a tougher skin that’s coated with wax so they do need to be peeled and they have a ton of seeds. You would need to take the extra step to scoop them out.
