En lille salatagurk, med tynd mørkegrøn skal. Sprød, sød og saftig, og uden risiko for bitterhed. En type agurk, der oprindelig kommer fra Mellemøsten - udviklet på en israelsk kibbutz af samme navn.
Fra Wikipedia: Since the 1930s a kibbutz member, Hanka Lazarson, was engaged in vegetable breeding; including: cucumber, onion, garlic, aubergine and cauliflower. Between 1931 and 1936 she developed a breed of cucumbers that came to be known as the "Beit Alpha Cucumber" (or "Beth Alpha Cucumber"). The breed became highly popular worldwide due to its excellent taste and high yield. The vegetable breeding program in Beit Alpha continued successfully over the next 30 years; constantly improving various varieties.
