what is the best way to store cucumbers



As far as I know, they're not something you can store - you cut and eat each one straight away, or give to others to eat, or you can pickle them, though usually this is done with small cucumbers.

Cool and airy or you will get mould on them. Keeping cool but not cold also means that it slows the drying out process and them becoming soft and flabby. They don't store for that long though, maybe two or three weeks.

The only way I know to store them long term is pickled. Here's a recipe from the BBC website -

Otherwise about 10 days if wrapped in cling film and kept in the fridge.
