  • Wonderful and unique delicacy

Cucumis melo

40-45 days.  Introduced to us and to the U.S. by Mehmet Oztan at Two Seeds in a Pod.  Badem is a stuffing/pickling melon from Turkey, and we just loved it growing it! It's not a sweet melon, but has a lovely, fresh cucumber taste.  It's very juicy and is producing early in the season.  When pickling, pick them young.  When stuffing, hollow out and/or dry larger fruits.  Considered a delicacy where it is from in Antwerp, Turkey.
