Tinda Seeds, Apple Gourd (Praecitrullus fistulosus)

Price for Package of 3 seeds.

Tinda also called "Indian squash", "round melon", "Indian round gourd" or "apple gourd" or "Indian baby pumpkin", is a squash-like cucurbit grown for its immature fruit, a vegetable especially popular in South Asia.

Distribution and use

The species is native to India and Pakistan and is cultivated in the north of both countries, where the ripe fruits are a popular vegetable. The harvest takes place before the seed husks harden. The fruits are cooked after removing the seeds, often together with lentils. They are also inserted. The seeds are eaten roasted. There are two different forms: one with light green fruits, which is generally preferred, and the other with dark green fruits.

The plant is as with all cucurbits, a prolific vine, and is grown as an annual. The plant also is prickly with small thorns similar to the zucchini. The fruit is approximately spherical, and 5–8 cm in diameter The seeds may also be roasted and eaten. Tinda is a famous nickname among Punjabi families in India. This unique squash-like gourd is native to South Asia, very popular in Indian and Pakistani cooking with curry and many gourmet dishes. Green colored, apple-sized fruits are flattish round in shape and 50–60 grams in weight. Plants are vigorous, productive and begin to bear fruits in 70 days after planting.

Tinda can be confused with tendli or kundru due to similar-sounding names from different languages and regions. Tinda in Punjabi or most North Indian languages are "Indian baby pumpkin".

Tinda is considered a boring vegetable by many in North India – part of the reason is it is used in a lot of curries during high season and tastes bland unless used with a lot of spices. Further, its seeds are not favored by many. It is practically unknown in South India.
