(C. pepo) A tiny gourd just 2" long! They are bottle-shaped and green-and-white striped -- turning tan when dry. This unique heirloom was sent to us by Mr. Junior G., of Primm Springs, Tennessee. They used to be popular there, and his Ma had said that when she was going to school, kids would bring 'em to play with. Dancing gourds spin just like a top.

Review:

I found a dried gourd like this in my great grand parents things. They brought it to Texas from Tennessee in 1873 (written on the side of the gourd) When I saw these in your catalog I had to grow them. Until I saw them there I never could figure out why they brought it. Now I know they had something to entertain the children.

I had 2 hills of this gourd and ended up with at least a 3 gallon bucket full of dried gourds for crafts. I am looking forward to making lots of things with my daughters this winter.

Review:

I, too, love these little gourds. This year I put some partially dried ones out on my picnic table in the rain to help soften the remaining outer layers so I could scrape them... Well, somebody had a party on my picnic table. The next day 16 out of 20 gourds were eaten, or really partially eaten... I could just imaging a bunch of squirrels dancing and munching on the picnic table, but someone suggested it was probably deer... anyone have any ideas on what animal would eat these?

Review:

Our family loves to grow these. We usually plant them at the base of trees with low branches since they are climbers. Lots of gourds per vine and so much fun to play with. The kids try to spin them like tops. They are great for crafts too.

Review:

I just love these little gourds! I planted some in the garden and kept some in flower pots. The ones in the pots stayed small and produced smaller sized gourds than the ones in the garden. They do well with some staking or a trellis. They are quite abundant and will produce many gourds per plant. After they matured and I let them dry, my children and I turned them into all sorts of crafts such as necklaces, mini decorative birdhouse ornaments, seed bead containers, etc. The possibilities are endless!
