Qukes® are a unique variety of cucumbers that are grown to be mini. They are extra crunchy with a crisp, mild skin that’s offset by a refreshing, cleansing flavour. Their mini size makes them the perfect size for kids of all ages. They also don’t require any prep – just rinse and serve. No need to peel the skin.
They are also a great source of folate for healthy cells, as well as fibre and vitamin C.
Qukes® baby cucumbers are delicious as is, however, they can also be turned into delicious snacks that kids would ask for again and again! The following recipes are great as a snack, to pop into a school lunchbox, or as a post school treat.
