Seed crop 2017

We have been working on releasing seeds for this wonderful Armenian cucumber (Acur in Turkish) variety for a few years now. Badem is an excellent stuffing/pickling melon from Antep, the 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 known to be traditionally grown in Antep, Urfa and Mardin as a regional delicacy. Fruits are carved and dried for stuffing recipes. Young crunchy fruits are great for pickling.
Badem thrived in the drought during Spring 2017 in our field. This variety is also a great choice to grow in the fall here on our farm, when the rainy season is over.
Each package contains 10 seeds
