The cucumber balsam is an annual plant of the cucurbits family, with a long, branched, climbing stem, equipped with a mustache. After about two months of sowing, there appear relatively large, fragrant yellow flowers, shortly thereafter cylindrical fruits, initially green, then discolored yellow. All above-ground parts of plants have utility value as a vegetable and medicinal plant. Young fruits, about 10 cm long with leaves, are a valuable spice for meat, vegetable dishes and salads. Raw food has a bitter taste, so leave it in brine for several hours and boil, then eat directly or fry in slices. Flowers, young shoots and leaves after cooking are tasty, spicy vegetables. Fruit balms are used by Indian folk medicine as a medicine for diabetes, because they contain a compound similar to insulin, whose action regulating blood sugar confirmed in clinical trials. The package contains 2 grams of seeds. Each package contains information about the cultivation principles and the expiration date for sowing.
All of our seeds pass through a four-stage quality control process. STAGE ONE consists of carefully selecting producers as well as controlling their crops, including foreign producers. Plants are not only checked when they start to grow, but also during blooming and bearing. It is important at this stage to ensure spatial isolation, thanks to which we can be certain of obtaining the desired morphological characteristics of each particular species, such as colour, height and shape.
STAGE TWO consists of performing high precision tests in laboratory conditions. Thanks to the use of the highest quality equipment, and also thanks to highly qualified staff, our suppliers perform more than 30,000 quality tests annually. STAGE THREE consists of sowing seeds in control plots. We obtain precise information concerning their germination, which must be maintained at an appropriately high level. Simultaneously, the varietal identity of each species is checked at this stage.
STAGE FOUR is performed in our warehouses and consists of rejecting seeds which have been lying for too long on our shelves and replacing them with new batches. Each packet is stamped with an appropriate batch number and also with the sow-by-date. All four stages make it possible for us to state with confidence that the seeds we are selling comply with the highest standards and have passed through all possible control stages without problems.
