Description

This bladdernut species is a very rare shrub from Southeast Europe that grows in warm woods. After flowering it forms bubble shaped pods which contain the actual bladder nuts. If these in turn are cracked, they reveal a pea-sized core with an
intense flavour reminiscent of almond and pistachio. Since ancient times the bladdernut is appreciated for those tasty seeds, which are also rumored to have potency enhancing properties.

Seed, content: 10 European bladdernut seeds
Sowing and cultivation:

Hardy shrub growing up to 4 meters high. Can grow in semi-shade or full sun. It requires moist soil. Seeds can be very slow to germinate (maybe one year). This plant is a cold-germinator. The sowing must be kept cold for a period of some weeks (refrigerator) or you sow them in very early spring or autumn.
