Commercially introduced by us in the U.S.

Phonetically pronounced: ba-dem

Badem is an excellent stuffing/pickling melon (tr. acur) from Antep, culinary capital of Turkey. Short vines produce small, crunchy fruits with firm skin that develops dark green mottles and stripes on a light green background. Plants start producing as early as 40-45 days.
Badem is traditionally grown in Antep, Urfa and Mardin as a regional delicacy. Fruits are carved and dried for stuffing recipes. They are so refreshing off the vine, and they make amazing pickles. 
Plants thrived in the drought of Spring 2017 in our field in Tampa, FL. This variety was also a great choice to grow in the fall on our farm in Florida, when the rainy season was over.
Our current seed stock was grown by Julie Sheen of Giving Ground Seeds, Idaho.
Packet has 25 seeds
