It is actually a variety of muskmelon (<i>C. melo</i>), a species closely related to the cucumber (<i>C. sativus</i>). It is also known as the <b>yard-long cucumber</b>, <b>snake cucumber</b>, <b>snake melon</b>, and <i>uri</i> in Japan. It should not be confused with the snake gourds (<i>Trichosanthes</i> spp.). The skin is very thin, light green, and bumpless. It has no bitterness and the fruit is almost always used without peeling.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> </head> <body> <h2><strong>Black Lentil Seeds Beluga</strong></h2> <h2><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>Price for Package of 120 (3g) seeds.</strong></span></h2> <p>Small, shiny black lentils, which resemble caviar when cooked, but have a unique lentil taste and texture. Especially high in protein. The skins almost melt away. Versatile and less common than brown or green lentils. Enjoy them in salads, soups, and stews.</p> <p>The cooking time is about 30 minutes.</p> <p>Grow lentils similarly to peas; direct sow in mid-spring and harvest the whole plant when the pods are mostly dry. Hang the plants to dry, and then thresh the whole bundle, pods stems, and all to extract the seeds.</p> <hr /> <p>The lentil (Lens culinaris) is an edible pulse. It is a bushy annual plant of the legume family, grown for its lens-shaped seeds. It is about 40 cm (16 in) tall, and the seeds grow in pods, usually with two seeds in each.</p> <p>Lentils have been part of the human diet since the aceramic (before pottery) Neolithic times, being one of the first crops domesticated in the Near East. Archeological evidence shows they were eaten 9,500 to 13,000 years ago.</p> <p>Lentil colors range from yellow to red-orange to green, brown and black. Lentils also vary in size, and are sold in many forms, with or without the skins, whole or split.</p> <p>The seeds require a cooking time of 10 to 40 minutes, depending on the variety—shorter for small varieties with the husk removed, such as the common red lentil — and have a distinctive, earthy flavor. Lentil recipes[2] are used throughout South Asia, the Mediterranean regions and West Asia. They are frequently combined with rice, which has a similar cooking time. A lentil and rice dish is referred to in western Asia as mujaddara or mejadra. Rice and lentils are also cooked together in khichdi, a popular dish in the Indian subcontinent (India and Pakistan); a similar dish, kushari, made in Egypt, is considered one of two national dishes. Lentils are used to prepare an inexpensive and nutritious soup all over Europe and North and South America, sometimes combined with some form of chicken or pork.</p> <p> </p> <p>Dried lentils can also be sprouted by soaking in water for one day and keeping moist for several days, which changes their nutrition profile.</p> <p>Lentils with husk remain whole with moderate cooking; lentils without husk tend to disintegrate into a thick purée, which leads to quite different dishes.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Nutritional value and health benefits</strong></p> <p>With about 30% of their calories from protein, lentils have the third-highest level of protein, by weight, of any legume or nut, after soybeans and hemp.[4] Proteins include the essential amino acids isoleucine and lysine, and lentils are an essential source of inexpensive protein in many parts of the world, especially in West Asia and the Indian subcontinent, which have large vegetarian populations. Lentils are deficient in two essential amino acids, methionine and cysteine. However, sprouted lentils contain sufficient levels of all essential amino acids, including methionine and cysteine.</p> <p>Lentils also contain dietary fiber, folate, vitamin B1, and minerals. Red (or pink) lentils contain a lower concentration of fiber than green lentils (11% rather than 31%).[8] Health magazine has selected lentils as one of the five healthiest foods.</p> <p> </p> <p>The low levels of Readily Digestible Starch (RDS) 5%, and high levels of Slowly Digested Starch (SDS) 30%, make lentils of great interest to people with diabetes. The remaining 65% of the starch is a resistant starch that is classified RS1, being a high quality resistant starch, which is 32% amylose.</p> <p> </p> <p>Lentils also have some anti-nutritional factors, such as trypsin inhibitors and relatively high phytate content. Trypsin is an enzyme involved in digestion, and phytates reduce the bio-availability of dietary minerals.  The phytates can be reduced by soaking the lentils in warm water overnight.</p> <p> </p> <p>Lentils are a good source of iron, having over half of a person's daily iron allowance in a one cup serving.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Production</strong></p> <p>Lentils are relatively tolerant to drought, and are grown throughout the world. The FAO reported that the world production of lentils for calendar year 2009 was 3.917 million metric tons, primarily coming from Canada, India, Turkey and Australia.</p> <p> </p> <p>About a quarter of the worldwide production of lentils is from India, most of which is consumed in the domestic market. Canada is the largest export producer of lentils in the world and Saskatchewan is the most important producing region in Canada. Statistics Canada estimates that Canadian lentil production for the 2009/10 year is a record 1.5 million metric tons.</p> <p> </p> <p>The Palouse region of eastern Washington and the Idaho panhandle, with its commercial center at Pullman, Washington, constitute the most important lentil-producing region in the United States. Montana and North Dakota are also significant lentil growers. The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported United States 2007 production at 154.5 thousand metric tons.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>In culture</strong></p> <p>The lens (double-convex shaped) is so called because the shape of a lens is basically the same shape as lentils. Lens is the Latin name for lentil.</p> <p>Lentils are mentioned many times in the Hebrew Bible, the first time recounting the incident in which Jacob purchases the birthright from Esau with stewed lentils (a "mess of pottage").[16] In Jewish mourning tradition, lentils are traditional as food for mourners, together with boiled eggs, because their round shape symbolizes the life cycle from birth to death.</p> <p> </p> <p>Lentils were a chief part of the diet of ancient Iranians, who consumed lentils daily in the form of a stew poured over rice.</p> <p>Lentils are also commonly used in Ethiopia in a stew-like dish called kik, or kik wot, one of the dishes people eat with Ethiopia's national food, injera flat bread. Yellow lentils are used to make a non-spicy stew, which is one of the first solid foods Ethiopian women feed their babies. In Pakistan, lentils are often consumed with Roti/bread or rice.</p> <p> </p> <p>In India, lentils soaked in water and sprouted lentils are offered to gods in many temples. It is also a practice in South India to give and receive sprouted peas by women who perform Varalakshmi Vratam. It is considered to be one of the best foods because the internal chemical structures are not altered by cooking.</p> <p> </p> <p>In Italy and Hungary, eating lentils on New Year's Eve traditionally symbolizes the hope for a prosperous new year, most likely because of their round, coin-like form.</p> <p>In Shia narrations, lentils are said to be blessed by seventy Prophets, including Jesus and Mohammed.</p> <p> </p> </body> </html>

As the cucumber matures, the skin becomes a darker yellow and the green patches become smaller. It has a pale yellow to white flesh with small, yellowish edible seeds. Dosakai has a tangy taste, unlike most members of the Cucurbit family where bitterness is the norm; it is sweet and flavorful.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Current Facts</strong></p> <p>The small yellow cucumber, Dosakai is botanically known as Cucumis sativus and is a relative of the common cucumber. Unlike common cucumbers and other Cucurbits, Dosakai doesn’t contain the chemical compound that gives most fruit in this family a bitter taste.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Applications</strong></p> <p>Dosakai is commonly used in Indian Sambar (soup) or Dal referred to as Dosakaya pappu. It is also the key ingredient in Dosakaya pachadi, a chutney made with the yellow cucumber. Dosakai is used to make a delicacy from the state of Andhra Pradesh in southeastern India called Dosa Avakai, which is a pickled dish. The pickling process is quick, and the dish is ready in 24 hours, unlike the traditional Mango pickle of the same region of India which takes a week. Dosakai stores very well after pickling.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Geography/History</strong></p> <p>Dosakai is native to India and the immediate surrounding regions. It is prevalent in southeastern India in Andhra Pradesh, both in gardens and in the kitchen. Dosakai prefers a growing climate with short summers. </p> </body> </html>

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> </head> <body> <h2><strong>Ornamental squash mix seeds (Cucurbita sp.)</strong></h2> <h2><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>Price for Package of 10 seeds. </strong></span></h2> <p>Ornamental gourds are the gaily colored, oddly shaped, squash-like, hard-skinned fruits of plants belonging to several genera and species of the Cucurbitaceae family. They are closely related to the edible squashes and pumpkins, but included with Cucurbita are a different group of genera and species such as Lagenaria siceraria, Luffa cylindrica, Benincasa hispida, and others.</p> <p><strong>DESCRIPTION</strong></p> <p>Most of the fancy gourds have long, climbing, or creeping stems. They can be grown on trellises, arbors, and fences, thus making attractive display plantings.</p> <p>However, usually, the fruit rather than the growing plant is considered ornamental. These fruit are generally most useful and attractive as ornaments when the pulp dries and the shell becomes hard. There are many shapes and colors of these fancy gourds. Some are warty, some are smooth, some long, some round, some striped, and some banded. Most of them are not grown as vegetables, although some are edible if eaten at an immature stage, such as the luffa gourd (sometimes called running okra). A few of the edible squashes are quite ornamental when mature, such as the yellow crookneck squash and the turban (Turk's cap) squash.</p> <p>While the number of varieties is quite large, with new kinds being constantly raised from seed, the following kinds are more common.</p> <p><strong>Cucurbita pepovar.ovifera</strong></p> <p>• Pear gourds: Most of this kind are pear-shaped, but vary in color and markings. Some are white and smooth; some have dark and light green stripes; some have two colors, half yellow and half green; some with two colors have bands; others may be found with these different variegations in various combinations.</p> <p>Apple and orange gourds: These small, smooth, round gourds are white or orange and slightly flattened.</p> <p>Flat fancy gourds: These pumpkin shaped gourds are small (only 2-3 inches in diameter) and are orange or mixed with various shades of green.</p> <p>Warty-skinned fancy gourds: Small round gourds with warty surfaces colored white, green, yellow, or orange.</p> <p>Lagenariaspp.</p> <p>Siphon gourds: These have a large, 8 to 12 inch broad base and a long neck that curves back alongside the base toward the ground. They should be grown on the ground rather than trellises to prevent breaking the neck.</p> <p>Calabash pipe gourds: These are shaped much like a summer crookneck squash, except they are smooth-skinned.</p> <p>Dolphin gourd: These are light green and distinctly marked by ridges and unusual configurations. They are often displayed at fairs in Florida.</p> <p>Club gourds: These are long and shaped like bowling pins.</p> <p>Birdhouse gourds: These jug shaped gourds are often made into birdhouses.</p> <p>Bottle gourds: Typically, this kind is a combination of a broad round base, a bottle-neck, and a smaller round neck. There are many sizes, some holding as much as 2 gallons.</p> <p>Others</p> <p>Turk's cap (C. maxima): This 5 to 10 pound edible turban squash has a round orange bottom with the top one-third a protruding cream colored 'acorn' or 'navel'. The rind is relatively soft and fairly smooth.</p> <p>Luffa gourds (Luffa spp.): These are also called running okra and dish-rag gourd. Some fruits have sharp ribs running lengthwise. Luffas are from 1 to 2 feet long, and their best eating quality is when they reach 1 to 2 inches in diameter. When mature, the pulp dries to the consistency of fibrous sponge that may be made into ornamental items such as hats, or used for scrubbing.</p> <p><strong>CULTURE</strong></p> <p>Since they are so closely related to squashes and pumpkins, ornamental gourds may be grown throughout Florida. In North and Central Florida, plant as soon as the danger of killing frost is past. In South Florida, plant seeds in September through March. Gourds do best if grown on a trellis because of their vining nature and for prevention of fruit rots. Hills (1 to 2 seeds each) may be spaced 12 to 24 inches apart at the base of the trellis. If planted in an open garden, allow 4 feet between vines in the row and 4 feet between rows. Plant seed 1 to 2 inches deep.</p> <p><strong>USE</strong></p> <p>Unlike edible squash, which is picked in an immature stage, gourds should be allowed to mature and dry on the vine if possible. Cut specimens with a few inches of stem attached. Use sharp shears to harvest the gourds; never twist them from the plant.</p> <p>Once harvested, the fruits may be washed in mild, warm soapy water then rinsed and dried. A month or two of drying and curing in a dry, warm, airy room may be needed. Sunlight fades colors during drying.</p> <p>During curing, the thin film-like outer skin may be scraped off. Sometimes during curing, mold growths form on the shell in attractive patterns and may be retained for decorative effect.</p> <p>As ornaments, the gourds may be used with natural colors and shape unchanged, or they may be sanded and painted in imaginative colors and designs. The odd shapes of gourds inspire certain modifications, making them into figurines. For example, the calabash gourd is often called penguin gourd since it is easily made into a penguin figurine.</p> <p>In addition to ornamental value, many practical uses are made of them, such as hanging baskets, vases, fruit bowls, dippers, smoking pipes, birdhouses, and toys.</p> </body> </html>

<h2><strong>Tinda Seeds, Apple Gourd (Praecitrullus fistulosus)</strong></h2> <h2><span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong>Price for Package of 3 seeds.</strong></span></h2> <p>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.</p> <p><strong>Distribution and use</strong></p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>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".</p> <p>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.</p>
