description for "Cucumber: Cucumis sativus 'Garden Oasis'"

'Garden Oasis' is a deluxe Beit-Alpha style hybrid, renowned for quality throughout the Mediterranean basin, but now grown here because its delicate flesh doesn't permit easy shipping. The medium green fruits are smooth and glossy, about 5 to 8 inches long, with very thin and tender skins and pale, juicy crisp flesh - the ultimate in cool and crunchy refreshment. Strong and early-producing 'Garden Oasis' plants are resistant to mosaic viruses and powdery and downy mildews. Cut rather than pull fruits from vines before seeds are large inside. Harvest every few days for longest fruit production. These juicy tender cucumbers need no peeling. Slice and enjoy for refreshing snacks, in salads and sandwiches. Eat cucumbers within a day or two of picking for best taste and quality. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
