When storing cucumbers you want to place them on the top shelf of your refrigerator. Not down at the bottom or in the crisper drawer. The reason for putting your cucumbers on the top shelf is because it is the warmest part of your refrigerator. That will eliminate the chance of ice crystals forming within the cucumber. Cucumbers have a lot of seeds and moisture inside and when ice crystals form and then dissolve again the cucumber becomes soggy. It also becomes bitter, limp, and flavorless. So keep them at the top of the refrigerator for the best flavor and the best vitamins which are in the dark green skin and enjoy your cucumbers.
