This is the most popular cucumber and is grown under glass. It is long, usually 30–45 cm, and often individually wrapped in plastic because its skin is very soft and is easily damaged. The plastic stops the cucumber drying out and going soft. Telegraph cucumbers are often referred to as seedless because when harvested at their best, the seeds are immature or virtually nonexistent.
