Munchers seem to have it all. Considered a slicing cucumber when mature, this variety can also be harvested for pickling when they’re young and smaller. But wait, there’s more—the Muncher cucumber is also burpless and seedless! The Muncher’s skin is thin and edible and the flesh is crunchy and sweet. This cucumber is definitely a crowd-pleaser!
