Cucumber Beit (Beth) Alpha (38-16)

$3.50

Cucumber Beit Alpha. These mideast type cucumbers have a very thin skin, absolutely no bitterness, are mild, productive over a long season, one of the earliest to produce, and should go until a frost. In short, they are one of the best all-around cucumbers available. Pick them when they are about five or six inches long for best flavor and texture. They do well on a trellis but you can grow them on the ground also. Set out transplants or direct seed three feet apart (3-5 seeds per hill, thin to three best plants) with rows five to six feet apart. 4 gram packet, approximately 100 seeds. Approximately 30-45 seeds per gram.

I grow these for their smaller size and delicious taste. Produces well and many of my customers like them for their gardens because they are easy to grow in a small space. Also, they produce just the right amount for 1 or 2 people.

I've been growing these cucumbers for over a year and everyone I give them to says they are the best cucumber they every ate. I grow in containers/earthboxes and always get a huge yield regardless of variety. This summer I decided to see if cucumbers would produce in the heat and would bees come to pollinate. Both happened and I'm keeping track of the # of picked cucumbers. I planted 3 seeds - 1 in a Root Pouch, 2 in an Earthbox in May. I picked my first cucumber on June 26 and 4 weeks later am up to 170 picked. The plants are still going strong. I have not sprayed at all but do cover the plants at night with tulle so the pickle worm moths don't invade. I have only lost one cucumber to a caterpillar. I've run out of people to give them to. My husband made pickles (haven't tried yet).

I just ate my first of 2 grown in the garden here in North Central Florida. This may be the earliest I've ever gotten cucumbers here. And they are as good as I had hoped they would be - crisp, juicy, sweet and not at all bitter. Thanks for providing this one Dan, it is an excellent selection.
