Heart-shaped cucumbers

We already know the extraordinary shaped fruit and vegetables from Japan, like the square watermelon. But we also have something special from the Netherlands. The heart-shaped cucumbers, a bestseller for Valentine’s Day.

The heart-shaped cucumbers come from two Dutch growers. During the last days of the growth they carefully place a heart-shaped transparant mall around the snack cucumbers. This then grows into a heart-shaped cucumber.

Thanks to its creative shape you can easily create a playful dish. these cucumbers also have a dark skin, which means extra flavor. These heart-shaped cucumbers are ideal for Valentine’s Day!
