Review:

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.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
