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.

What are the cons?
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.
