One very good example of the diversification of Rijk Zwaan are the snack cucumbers, which are just the right size to eat in one bite. This type is also ideal as a snack between meals, especially for children. The snack range is now further expanded with a light green variety with a firmer bite, an attractive creamy-white and a bicolor.
