English Cucumbers

English cucumbers are generally not waxed and therefore do not need peeling. They are typically referred to as seedless,  and while they will actually have some seeds, the seeds are much smaller and less prominent. It is the seeds in a cucumber (and especially in an aging cucumber) that make it bitter, so a semi-seedless English cucumber is less likely to be bitter. English cucumbers have also been bred to be more easily digested than other varieties.
