Organic seed from the Pannon area, also long standing in Hungary. It will grow into prolific, healthy, resistant plants. You can use it in biodynamic farming, it's an open pollinating (non hybrid) type. This way you can collect and grow from your own seeds in the next years.
Cultivation is like for cucumbers in a greenhouse or wine-growing climate. Approx. 30-cm-long cucumber-like fruits. Young fruits can be eaten stewed. Dried skeleton parts of the ripe fruits can be used as a sponge for the kitchen or for a body scrub in the bath.
Sowing: from mid March to end of April.
Plant outdoors from the second part of May, after the frost.
