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 planted seeds in early June, hoping I was not too late. By the end of July I had at least four full size luffas with more starting out on the vines each day. They will take over and area if left unchecked, not really a negative but something to keep in mind. So far mine have gone up four feet and down the same with fifteen to twenty feet going across the ground with a month left before frost hits. I will plant these again next year in a larger area to keep them from choking out other plants.

Review:

I've grown these LUFFA GOURDS for three years and am very happy with the results. I start them early in the green house to plant in May. Lots of flowers and bees. Lots of gourds. I ate a few and that was fun. But most of them are ripened and processed for scrubbing. I have even added soap to some and gave them as gifts at Christmas.

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.
