Tindora

Tindora are a cross between a cucumber and a gourd and can be used in curries, pickles, salads, marinades and may more. Shana Tindora may be used immediately from frozen, making them a tidy and convenient way of enjoying the vegetable at its best.

Our vegetables are frozen close to the time of harvest to ensure they retain a higher level of vitamins and nutrients. Absolutely no water is added during the IQF (Individual Quick Freezing) process, providing you with nature’s best.
