What are the pros? Huge beautiful bottles
What are the cons? Slow maturing
I grew this gourd for the first time in 2015, thinking I would only get a few to mature since it has a need for long growing seasons, which Idaho only gets part of the time...was I wrong! I ended up with 15 huge bottles, all perfect (as gourds grow). I won a blue ribbon at the Idaho Gourd Festival for the largest one (green), and needed help to get it out of my car and into the festival...I am very pleased with the ease of growing these, but am a bit daunted about decorating such a large gourd. I am sure I can sell the excess, though. All-in-all, I have had fun growing these gourds.
