Hawaiian Dance Mask Gourd

110 days. Uniquely-shaped fruits like a large flat bottom pear, about 10 inches tall and around 8 inches across at the base. Hawaiians used the gourd to make ritual helmets or "makini" prior to European contact. The small end of the gourd was removed, the large end hollowed out, eye openings cut, and the entire piece was decorated with fern fronds or sedge grass and white streamers. Each item had ritual significance, as the masks were worn at Makahiki, the annual festival honoring Lono, the deity of fertility and harvest. Could there be a better symbol for nature's abundance than gourds?

What are the pros? Huge beautiful bottles

What are the cons? Slow maturing

Review:

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.
