description for "Cucumber: Cucumis sativus 'Green Fingers'"

Appetizing little 'Green Fingers' are cute mini cucumbers that are smooth, thin-skinned, crispy and ready to pick when just 3 to 5 inches long. The vigorous, powdery mildew tolerant vines are self-pollinating, early-bearing, and set fruits reliably even in difficult conditions. Enjoy these quality baby cucumbers all season long. It took us a long time to find a good seed source for these exceptional little baby cucumbers usually found only in Middle Eastern markets. 'Green Fingers' cucumbers begin bearing fruit early. For best quality, cut rather than pull cucumbers from the vine when 3 to 5 inches long. They need no peeling, just slice and enjoy their crisp texture and flavor. Enjoy in a Mediterranean salad of sliced 'Green Fingers' combined with very fresh plain whole yogurt, a little good olive oil, finely minced garlic and freshly chopped dill. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
