Green Harvest sell the seed also - I like to use them because they're local at Maleny.
Now they do sound good.
Baker Creek seeds are good people but Customs took most of my last order (all the toms) and left me with a couple of packets of carrot seed. Will have to check the Australian seed sites to see if anyone has any.
Just found Pepino seed :o on Vegetable Seeds Australia. Tempted to get some just to see they're different from my seedless variety.
The Lost Seed sell them :)
You could try the Suyo Long cucumber. It does very well in hot weather and some say the taste is pretty good.
Unfortunately I can't give you exact quantities as my "cooking" is mostly guesswork and taste.
I found this pic from last year.
The winter melon vine was still alive and producing fruits by winter. I eventually removed it because we had way more melons than we could eat.
Just read the first message - sounds like I need to test the next two melons for "prickle release" before cutting off.
I was quite concerned that the birds would do my baby some damage. They ruined a cucumber at the other end of the bed. The WM fruit did have the advantage of a couple of leaves that I would hang in front of it like a curtain to hide it.
Wow - little heaps of powder. It's a serious protective system this fruit has going on. Do you know of any other fruits like this that I could hunt down and grow?
Yeah, should be hey :S I managed to make the most horrendous dark gelatinous mess the other night. Another since was quite good (I think I tried a little harder due to having a dinner guest lol).
There's a balance of flavour thing that I still don't have figured with asian food. I really need to do some sort of course...or just watch more TV cooking shows lol.
Stir fry should be quite easy.
You have to make sure the oil is hot before the garlic goes in. Let the garlic sizzle until the pieces turn a little brown. Throw in the veges or meat then stir around. You want the garlic oil to infuse into the meat/veges. When the meat/veges is almost cooked, that's when you add the sesame oil, soy sauce and oyster sauce.
Oh, if the hairs don't come off easily, it means the melon isn't quite ripe yet. But still very edible, I mean, it's not as if winter melon has to be picked at prime sweetness :)
Disclaimer time! I'm not sure whether melons that aren't fully ripe will produce more white powder. With ripe ones, excess powder end up in little heaps on the ground around the melon.
Tried to wipe off the prickles with a handtowel but they don't seem to want to come off. The white powder did though...... so hoping you're right about the excretion (I'm sure you are! just need to see it for myself). Prickles aren't too much of a bother.
Will have to look for some recipes for this little baby on the net :) Been eating quite a bit of stir fry lately and I really don't do it very well :(
The melon will continuously excrete white powder.
