I purchase the cocktail and snackable Persian cucumbers from my big box store because I enjoy the taste of the smaller cucumbers over the larger varieties. I always store them in my refrigerator because I purchase them from the refrigerated produce section at the store. I never really finish eating the cucumbers before they go bad, which seems like a waste.
Is there a specific cucumber variety when refrigerated, will have a longer refrigeration shelf life? Is there a proper way to store cucumbers so they don't start decaying and developing a film of slime, start sweating or mold in the refrigerator? I've tried to leave them out on the counter like I would leave out tomatoes, but they tend to develop wrinkles and lose their moisture. What is the proper way to store cucumbers?
