But even in a crisper drawer, they begin to get shriveled and soft in only a few days. Plus, leaving cucumbers wrapped in plastic will result in a slimy cucumber in a short period of time.
To keep cucumbers fresh longer, first wrap each cucumber in a piece of paper towel to absorb excess moisture. If you prefer not to use paper towel, an inexpensive flour sack towel may also be used. In that case, you may want to wrap several cucumbers since the flour sack towels are larger.
You can then place several cucumbers in a produce bag, or even a plastic bag, and place the bag in the refrigerator.
This simple trick will keep your cucumbers fresh longer. Try it!
