This heirloom was collected on the Southeast Asian island of Bali, at a market there. Gourds are trough-shaped and measure 20" long by about 8" in diameter. A rare gourd that's hard to find.

Review:

I planted this gourd for the last two years and have gotten nice sized gourds, easily 18 inches. They grew as well as my other gourds and seem to have a decently thick shell. I love the unique trough shape. A couple of them grew laying on the ground so they have a naturally flat side which will be perfect for creating a natural trough. It matured early enough that it had plenty of time to start curing so it didn't crack with the onset of cold and freezing temps. I left it outside all winter and it came through great!

Review:

This is the best tasting and most prolific gourd I have ever grown. I planted only 1 seed, and the vine has been producing lots of gourds for over 8 months. The weather in California in October generally kills most of my vines, but not this one.

Review:

This is a very prolific gourd. I planted several vines, and there are gourds everywhere. It is even holding up well to a massive invasion of stink bugs. I have given them almost no water and it has been very hot, and yet they are thriving. (I'm in North Carolina, and we have broken several heat records this year.) However, and this may be because I'm not able to get any extra water to them, but they are only about eight inches long, and some are ripe. That is rather disappointing. I was expecting a Goliath of a gourd, and they are kind of dinky. Perhaps next year I will have an irrigation system and they might grow bigger. They are one of the most prolific of my gourds, so I do plant to try again for a bigger gourd.
