A delicious, very sweet cucumber that is usually picked small and does not need peeling as the skin is very tender. This variety is very popular in the Mediterranean, having been developed in Israel at a kibbutz farm. Now becoming popular with Americans because of the fruits’ fine flavor and high yields. They are also burpless and have great shelf life.

Review:

I planted these and a pickling variety named Double Yield this year. The Beit Alpha vines are easier to manage, seem to be setting more female blossoms and can be used for anything at any size. Next year I'm only growing these for both pickles and fresh eating. No spines, no tough skin, no bitterness. What's not to love?

Review:

This is my first time growing cucumbers. I'm an amateur gardener but these seeds made me feel like a pro. I had 100% germination and once these started producing, is like they've gone crazy! I have way more cucumbers than me and my immediate family can eat. They have a lovely taste and I can eat them like candy bars since the skin is so thin and nice. Everyone I have given some to loved them, and they almost always comment on how pretty the cucumbers are, haha. This is a wonderful variety of cucumber and these Bakercreek seeds are high quality.

Review:

Just sampled the first fresh cuke from my 2014 garden. The flavor has no bitterness at all, but not a lot of notable other flavors either. The cucumber essentially tasted like crisp refreshing water, which isn't a bad thing. If I had let the fruit mature a bit more it might have developed more character, I picked at 6". There were problems early on with stem borer insects that penetrated the stems at the base, but once I made sure there was no mulch around the base of the plants there were no further problems and the plants recovered from the damage without a hitch. The growth rate of these plants is phenomenal, they are trying to take over the whole yard. They do need misting occasionally in the Texas heat in addition to regular and deep watering. Lots of fruit is setting, very productive. I would recommend trellising of some sort unless you want them to sprawl all over creation.

Review:

As a novice gardener, and first year Bakers Creek clientele, I decided to try this as I wanted to pickle them. Problem is I can't keep us from eating them fresh!! We harvested our first cucumber yesterday after realizing that I needed to hand pollinate them due to lack of bees. My daughter always wants her cucumbers peeled.....no need with this little beauty. My daughter said it was the, "Sweetest, yummiest cucumber ever". Truly a sweet, not bitter cucumber no bigger than my hand when we harvested. We will be planting this again and again!! Now I wish I had planted more than just 6!! A must try for cucumber lovers and haters!
