Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Beit Alpha Cucumber
Cucumis sativus- A Middle Eastern variety of cucumber. Germination is 6-10 days and is ready for picking around 56 days. Plant when the soil reaches 70 degrees, sow in mid-June.
This variety of cucumber is large in circumference, smooth on the surface, very tender skin and burpless. The fruit is very sweet, bitter-free with a no-peel skin. Dark green in color, and best picked when fruit reached 5-6". They are very mild flavor, great in salads, perfect for slicing or pickled.
Very nice growing slowly I've picked three so far and they are very tender and good
Seeds germinated very fast and I planted very small plants in the last week of July and in the end if the second week of August am harvesting cucumbers. They are very tasty little guys, I am picking them small, burpless but with little prickles on the skin that must be washed off. Very very fast growing and productive plant! Very pleased.
