Description

New Product!

Pickle-perfect! Very popular in the Mediterranean; also called a Lebanese or Middle Eastern Cucumber. Fine, sweet flavor, high yields, burpless and has great shelf life. An excellent choice for both slicing and pickling. Bitter-free. Needs abundant moisture, rich soil and a bit of afternoon shade. Harvest frequently to keep the vines producing. Beit Alpha takes better to direct-sowing than starting indoors and transplanting, so save yourself the extra effort. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.

Had some gold colored cucumbers in the past and they tasted so good fresh- hoping these are similar
