Beit Alpha Cucumber

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.

What are the pros? Not a lot.

What are the cons? Not vigorous, odd fruit.

Review:

These were not vigorous or productive plants. The fruit was misshapen and the skin was not uniform. They were tasty enough but I will look for a better variety for my Michigan garden.

Decent cucumber

What are the pros? Nice size, decent flavor

What are the cons? Not abundant yield

Review:

These plants would start to grow and then die off. It was the least hardy of all the cucumbers that I planted. I did end up with 4 plants--in hopes that I'd have enough to make pickles. The most cucumbers I had at any one time was 3. By the time more would be ready, the others would be too soft. Three is not enough for me to make pickles. Flavor was decent, but yield was poor. Buy these if you are looking for a nice eating cucumber.

What are the pros? Delicious

What are the cons? Seedy

Review:

These were delicious and crisp, and were excellent keepers. The skin is thin and does not need to be peeled. However, at much more than 6" long they had developed large seeds that were very tough, not soft like other cucumber seeds. Recommended for great flavor and keeping in the fridge without getting soft, but should be cut into spears with the seeds removed, not into salad slices.

What are the pros? tons of cucs per plant

What are the cons? not the best for pickles

Review:

These plants seriously produce tons of cucumbers per plant. There were so many that I tried pickling them. While the pickles were very tasty and good they were also pretty seedy and not very crunchy. I would definitely recommend this one as an outstanding salad cuc but not a pickler.
