- A sweet burpless cucumber that doesn't need to be peeled and has a good shelf life and is parthenocarpic.
The Beit Alpha CMR/MMR cucumber is an excellent addition to any home garden. Each cucumber has a medium green exterior and very small black spine. This cucumber grows straight and ranges between 5-8‚ long. Beit Alpha is a generally gynoecious strain that produces mostly female flowers. It may also be parthenocarpic (able to set fruit without pollination), but this characteristic is in dispute. We recommend that Beit Alpha be planted near a monoecious strain to ensure cropping. Plant indoors and transport or sow outside. If growing indoors, sow seeds ½‚ deep, and move plant outdoors after 4 weeks after the last frost. If growing outside sow ½‚ deep in direct sun in the spring. Approx 1090 Seeds / Oz.
