Information on juicing Cucumber

Cucumber juice contains mineral salts that help achieve healthy skin, hair and nails. Cucumber can give a juice recipe a refreshing, cool taste.

Make sure you wash your cucumber before chopping and juicing as the cucumber skin is sometimes covered in an edible wax to prevent moisture loss.

Cucumber quality is primarily based on uniform shape, firmness and a dark green skin color. Yellowing of skin colour can indicate loss of quality.

Along with squash, melons, and pumpkins, cucumbers are part of the Cucurbitaceae family and collectively with these crops belong to the group of vegetables known as cucurbits or vine crops.

The cucumber is believed native to India, and evidence indicates that it has been cultivated in western Asia for 3,000 years.
