Achocha (Cyclanthera pedata)

Climbing plant from the same family as cucumbers, native to the Andes. The fruits have a similar taste, are easy to grow and are not attacked by the striped leaf beetle. Pick when the fruits are small, that's when they are the most crunchy. Eat them raw or pickle them.

The vast majority of our seeds are produced on our farm. However, if the cultivation of a variety fails or if it is out of stock, we source from other seed companies to ensure an interesting selection. This is the case for this variety. They came from Semences Nouveau Paysan (bio)
