Harshal Hirve 2015

Concombres are nearly always available, especially the long thin smooth dark green seedless English Hothouse variety, which is no longer wrapped in plastic, as it used to be.

In summer you can also see the dark green ‘common cucumber’ with a thicker skin, and sometimes the warty Kirby ones.

Little ones are cornichons.
