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:

This was my first time planting these. Every seed I planted germinated this past Spring (2015)!! It did begin with way more blooms than gourds. However, once the first gourd sprouted, they have been none stop! I have 4 vines planted. Of those, I have 13 in the drying process, about 2 dozen or more almost ready on the vine, and a LOT more still growing! Extremely satisfied this these seeds! They DO and WILL take over if you don't keep them trimmed back. I just let mine go to make for a 'privacy' fence. :) Thank you Baker's Creek!

Wonderful quality seeds! Every seed start sprouted and they are beautiful healthy plants. I'm very excited and looking forward to the blooms and gourds produced! I wish I could post a picture of them as they are very impressive.

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.
