CUCUMBERS

How to care and store English seedless cucumbers

Refrigeration before use is not necessary with English seedless greenhouse cucumbers. Ontario Greenhouse cucumbers do NOT require peeling. Their thin, un-waxed skin is completely edible.

English seedless cucumbers are wrapped in plastic to seal-in their natural moisture and prolong shelf life. You can store them in a cool place for up to 10 days. Because of the plastic seal, they do not require waxing, so their edible skin has no bitter taste- just slice and enjoy! You can use as much of the cucumber as you need, then fold the plastic over and save the rest for next time.

How to care and store mini cucumbers

Greenhouse grown mini cucumbers are increasingly popular, especially with kids. Up to 15 cm long and weighing 150-200 g, they are sweet and aromatic and have an edible skin. They may be kept about a week in the refrigerator crisper or two weeks if packed in cling-film. Avoid storing cucumbers with fruits that produce the natural ripening agent ethylene, such as apples, pears and bananas.

How to select

Look for cucumbers that are a deep, vivid green colour. They should be blemish-free and heavy for their size. Check to ensure there are no soft spots or blemishes, especially at the ends.

TOMATOES How to care and store

NEVER refrigerate tomatoes- it spoils their taste and ruins their texture. Ontario Greenhouse tomatoes should be stored in a cool location, ideally at 13 to 15 degrees Celsius, or 55 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit, out of direct sunlight.

How to select

Look for tomatoes that are plump, firm, free of surface cracks and bruises and heavy for their size. Selecting tomatoes that are at varying degrees of ripeness will ensure that you have perfect tomatoes every day of the week!

PEPPERS How to care and store

Greenhouse peppers are best stored in the refrigerator until you are ready to use them. Rinse in cold water before food preparation. Remove the core and seeds; cut into bite-size pieces or strips. Great raw, in stir-fries, baked, grilled or roasted.

How to select

Choose sweet peppers that are smooth, firm and plump with thick shiny skins. Make sure that there are no cracks or soft spots.
