description for "Cucumber: Cucumis sativus 'Bush Slicer'"

'Bush Slicer' offers juicy slicing cucumbers in record time on dwarf bushes, perfect for small space or container gardens. The straight, 6 to 8 inch-long fruits have smooth, tender skin with small seed cavities and sweet, crisp flesh. These sturdy indeterminate hybrid vines yield strong crops in both cool conditions and real summer heat. 'Bush Slicer' is resistant to powdery mildew, cucumber mosaic virus and scab. Enjoy this space saving, cucumber in delicious salads from your own patio this season. Keep all mature cucumbers picked; fruits left on vines will signal the plant to stop producing. Cut rather than pull cucumbers from the vine. Slice them up for refreshing snacks, salads and sandwiches. Eat within a day or two of picking for best taste and quality. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
