What are the pros? Large fruit
What are the cons? None
It’s October 10 and I am still harvesting. Some young fruit may have time to ripen yet. I have harvested 10 loofah gourds from a single plant. Several sources of information say to let the loofah get dry and dark on the vine but I find it easier to pick when they are a mustard yellow color and feel like a hard rubber toy. At that point the skin peels from the top down much like a banana. If it were completely dry, for one thing it would not be completely white but also you would have to pick little bits off at a time and would be very laborious.

What are the pros? Prolific growth
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.
