Beit Alpha Cucumber
Beit Alpha Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) This is an ideal slicing variety with similarities to most 'burpless' and seedless varieties. Beit Alpha originated in the Middle East. It is nearly seedless when ripe and very easy to peel. Beit Alpha has excellent disease resistance. Has a close likeness to the English cucumber varieties but much better in flavour in our opinion!
