Quick Produce Tips:
When trying to source the best cucumbers for juicing, search for medium-to-large cucumbers that are firm without any soft spots or blemishes.
Your cucumbers should be dark green with minimal to no yellow spots – these spots tend to develop once the cucumber becomes overly ripe. If your cucumbers have wax on the outside, make sure to properly remove the wax with a safe veggie wash.
