This wonderful "Cucumber Melon" from the Bari region of Southern Italy is one of the little known culinary secrets of the initiated.  The so called Tortorello Verde Barese is an incredible tender and crunchy "cucumber" like melon.  The fruits are harvested while still green.  The flesh is crunchy and with an exquisite nutty flavor.  These cucumber melons are a prized additions to almost all southern Italian salads.  The plants grow well wherever melons are grown- THEY are Melons- but they are eaten like CUCUMBERS!  You will love these and be ready to try other Italian "cucumber" melons after trying this one!

Review:

I discovered this vegetables as Tortarello share with Carosello and others the Apulian Puglia family of Melon cucumbers almost unknown in the north and central Italy . I ate a lot on holyday in Salento Lecce and since I wanted to grow , they are very easy to grow and produce a lot , may be too much. A great addiction to summer foods ! Have a look at the varieties there are ! http://www.sementilarosa.com/bio%20cetriolo%20tortarello%20barese%20sementi.html
