Melon NOURHANE F1 at Biskra

This year, the seed department at Debbane Agri has introduced the NOURHANE F1 variety in Biskra in the South East of Algeria. In the past, NOURHANE F1 was intended for open field segments in the western, central, and eastern regions of the country. Its introduction in the region of Biskra in covered fields has produced excellent results, which was reflected by the good behavior of the plant, a fruit size that exceeds 3 kg, the firmness of the fruit (Absence of fruit rot), a growth cycle ranging from 60 to 65 days and its exceptional sweet and fragrant taste. Given the advantages that NOURHANE F1 has offered in greenhouses; namely the precocity and firmness, we recommend that this variety be planted in the early cycle in December in Biskra.
