Hi Najwa,

Thanks for sharing this informative and interesting article. I knew that they were great vegetables, but not to this extent:-)

My pleasure. For me as well. There were 4 of them that I did not know of. I am a big fan of cucumbers. In Germany, they are sold pretty inexpensively compared to what they sell for in the States. Here in Germany I like to buy them. This morning I bought four!

Great. Do you buy organic? My hubby and I are vegetarians and we go every week to the farmer's market. The quality is impeccable here.

Nice! Farmer's markets are the best! I usually try to buy organic when in Germany because the organic or what they call "bio" ones are affordable. When I am in the States not a chance because the cost is ridiculously high. Even the "English" or "European" ones that are sold, the only type that I buy when I am in the States because although not organic are of good quality are also incredibly over priced -anywhere between $1.50-$2.00 or more a cucumber. It's crazy!

I think it's wonderful that you and your husband support our farmers at Farmers' Markets!

You are welcome.

To clarify, farmers' markets with farmers who sell whole, natural, good products are the best!

There is a difference between these kinds of farmers and the other kind of farmers isn't there.
