Those who plan on growing cucumbers will need to know when they are supposed to be picked. It is best to pick this vegetable when it is anywhere from seven to nine inches long. After you pick your cucumbers, you should be able to keep them on your kitchen counter for as long as two days or so.
You may want to consider simply leaving them hanging on the vine before picking them to use, just so you will get the most out of them in terms of overall flavor. There are certain â€œgreenâ€ bags you can buy from the store which help you to preserve your cucumbers for as long as possible.
