Beit Alpha OP Cucumber Plant
We have a 6 plant minimum. You can mix and match varieties to meet the minimum.
40 days from transplanting. Open pollinated. Developed in Israel, this type of cucumber is very popular in the Mediterranean area, and should be more popular here. It has a smooth, dark green, tender skin, sweet flavor, is burpless, and never bitter. It puts traditional American type slicing cucumbers to shame. We love to snack on them right out in the garden.
Productive, vigorous vines produced plenty of 8 to 10 inch, slender fruits for several months for us in our buggy, disease ridden Midwest garden. We recommend trellising for best results.
Having grown a hybrid beit alpha type cuke for years and having it be our favorite, we were very happy to find this open pollinated variety. And, after experiencing its stellar performance in our garden, we are proud to offer it to you.
