A Middle Eastern type cucumber that is smooth and blocky with dark green skin. The flesh is crunchy, and the skin so mild it does not have to be peeled.

Usually pickled from the middle east.

These picked cucumbers come in both large (see picture, third jar from the left) or small jars.

I like them with sandwiches made with pita bread.
