Dishcloth or Luffa Gourd

(Luffa Aegyptiaca) Burpee's 1888 catalogue said, "A natural dishcloth, and a most admirable one. Many ladies prefer this dishcloth. The fruit grow about 2', and the vine is very ornamental, producing clusters of yellow blossoms, in pleasing contrast with the silvery-shaded, dark green foliage. In the North this variety requires starting in a hotbed. The dried interiors of these gourds have already become an article of commerce; grown in Florida, they are sold by Philadelphia and NY druggists."

Review:

I grew this in NW Ohio. I only got one gourd from 4 plants, it was 20" long though. We had a really high population of spotted cucumber beetles this year, and because those beetles do eat pollen I can't blame the plant for not producing.

Review:

This spring/summer 2011 along the Mississippi gulf Coast has not been kind to gardeners. Hot Hot Hot and little to no rain. Many of my plants have struggled this year but not these. They are out of control. They grew up over the fence I built for them to run along and found there way onto and over our wooden privacy fence. Right now in early June they are 15 feet long and growing with gourds and flowers all over them. Non stop show of big yellow flowers. Girl at work makes soap air freshener things out of them.
