What are the pros? Easy to grow, Dries well
What are the cons? None
These are excellent gourds to grow. They are pretty much impossible to botch.
They are very aggressive and vigorous in arizona - I supplement with 1" of sprinkler water every morning because it's so dry here.
They are by far the most prolific plant on the property right now and I've harvested 3 that I sowed in February and have at least a few hundred out of half a dozen vines!
These are growing side by side with zucca gourds which are equitably as robust and vigorous as the birdhouse gourds!
Like most vines make sure you have plenty of room. These are growing both around a pond and in a garden patch and the garden patch got totally taken over by these vines. Excellent production though :)
