Gourds need to be planted early in your growing season. Leave on the vine until just before the first frost; they do not need to freeze. Pick when completely ripe, do not bruise fruit. Wash with a strong disinfectant to remove dirt and fungi – which may cause rot. Store in a cool dry place to cure out. Do not stack as they need air circulation.
Each seed packet contains approximately 18 seeds. Available from SeedGro, an American brand offering only the best natural, non-GMO, open-pollinated, hybrid, and heirloom untreated seeds.
