No Artificial Flavorings
100% organic and safe to eat, our ridge gourds are grown using high quality non-GMO seeds on certified organic farms. These ridge gourds are free from chemical pesticides and fertilizers used in commercial ridge gourds farming. We try our best to source the ridge gourds directly from the farms within 24 hours of harvesting.
Commercially cultivated ridge gourds may contain traces of chemicals such as beta-hexachlorocyclohexane and lamba- hexachlorocyclohexane, heptachlor and aldrin as per studies. Researches indicate that these chemicals may cause problems such as asthma, dizziness, nausea and several hormonal imbalances. There are many studies that have shown that often, ridge gourds are dipped in copper sulphate solution, a possible human carcinogenic, to make them look greener.
Appearance: Our ridge gourds are dark green coloured elongated vegetables. These are filled with white spongy flesh and white seeds. Our ridge gourds are 100% organic, and no artificial methods are used during their cultivation. Because of this they may vary in shape, size and colour. There might be slight colour variation due to the heat.
