Apple gourd, also known as Indian baby pumpkin or tinda, is a popular vegetable in Indian cuisine. The fruit is small, round and green in color, resembling a small apple, hence the name. The flesh is white, tender, and has a mild flavor that is perfect for curries, stir-fries, and soups.

Soil and Climatic Requirement: Apple gourd can be grown in a wide range of soils, but it thrives best in sandy loam or clay loam soils. The pH level of the soil should be between 6.5 and 7.5. Apple gourd is a warm-season crop that requires full sunlight. It can be grown in both tropical and subtropical regions.
