description for "Cucumber: Cucumis sativus 'Beit Alpha'"

Taste and culture combine with this amazing cucumber. Originally from the Middle East, this green, medium sized variety is readily adaptable to any US garden. Its mouth watering taste is delicious as a slicer or mixed into salads. The plant itself is very productive and may need support. This variety is not always available in the US market. Maturity in 60 days. Edited by S. Derr

History:

Seeds originally collected from the Middle East
