This Diva is no temperamental star but a true garden performer. Considered a Beit Alpha type that is both gynoecious and parthenocarpic. As such it is one of the smooth, thin-skinned class of cukes that originated in the Middle East, and produces exclusively female flowers which do not require pollination to set fruit. Tender, crisp, sweet and bitter-free, they are nearly seedless and best harvested between 5 to 7 inches. An All American Selection Winner renowned for taste, exceptional yields and disease resistance. A premium cuke for fresh eating.
