A newer Beit Alpha meant for on-the-ground field production. In our trials, this early, easy to harvest cucumber produced high yields of quality thin-skinned fruit with very little scarring. The flavor was excellent, and we like the taste and crunch better than all other varieties in trial. Slender, slightly ridged, medium dark green fruit have small seeds and a tight seed cavity. We suggest multiple plantings in the season, as Mercury has a concentrated harvest window. Monoecious with a high rate of female flowers.
