English cucumber vs standard cucumber
English cucumber has thinner skin, milder flavor, and soft and fewer seeds. Standard cucumbers are larger but have harder seeds and a more bitter taste.
Do you peel cucumber before juicing?
If you use English cucumbers, I do not think it is necessary to peel them. Standard cucumbers, however, have a more bitter skin, so I suggest you peel them.
