Cucumber grows well without special fertilization or watering, if you are buying them, choose young, slender varieties, preferably with thin skins. Zucchini is not a substitute.
Japanese cucumber are short and have a sweeter flavor and a smoother texture than large cucumber. This variety, also known as Lebanese cucumbers in some countries, is widely available in the fresh vegetables section of food stores. Baby cucumbers or pickling gherkins are good substitute.
