Japanese cucumbers are thinner and have rougher skin than normal cucumbers. They have less water content and slightly more concentrated in taste. Cucumbers are cut as thick sticks (seeds discarded) in the cucumber roll, and often julienned in fusion rolls. The cucumbers are rolled in salt for a few seconds to release extra moisture, so they have a crispier texture. When choosing a cucumber it is good to find one that is not fully grown and has less seeds.
