Japanese cucumber is a variety of the cucumber we all know and use that’s popular in Japan and that was produced there and now is used across the world. It’s milder in taste than western cucumbers and they are usually smaller in size.
They also don’t contain any seeds on the inside of the plant. That’s actually the feature that’s preventing them from becoming bitter in taste. They are available all year round.
