Safe to eat white cucumbers?

Cucumbers are not very big but white and after we cut them, they are a little slimy inside. Is this normal? What could be the problem?

It sounds like the plants are suffering from cucumber mosaic virus. This can cause greyish-white fruit. This article will explain more about the disease:

They are safe to eat, but they may not be tasty to eat. Diseases of cucumber plants can't harm you, but often the stress that is put on the plant by the disease can cause bitter cucumber fruits.
