We're finally starting to get some relief from the summer heat, but I'm still enjoying the cooling flavors of cucumber. I like the Armenian and Japanese varieties best. Both are thin-skinned and don't required seeding. No matter which variety you prefer, look for cucumbers that are relatively small and slender as they'll often be less bitter and have fewer seeds.
