Get Zucchini instead of cucumber, it last a lot longer and is easier to deal with. Cucumber seems to mush a little easier and makes a bigger mess.

You can give them a try, maybe you have some there that are better than the mushy ones I get localy. When I used them they always turned to mush unless I used Girkins as they are called which are only available for like 2 weeks localy.

If you find a cucumber that stays together really well please share that info here.
