A favorite here, the pear-shaped, 1' long gourds are covered with large "warts" even when small. The mature fruits have very hard shells and make great containers. Productive vines are beautifully loaded with fruit. Collected in Sonora, Mexico. Rare and hard to find.

What are the pros? gorgeous gourds, lush leaves

What are the cons? needs long, hot summers

Review:

Plant after soil warms and watch for earwigs. We have been growing/saving the seeds since 2007. My husband built a tepee from a 16' willow poles and created support with twine, leaving a door opening. Mayo Bule vines reach the very top every year, intertwined with Heavenly Blue morning glories. The hard-shelled gourds require a very long, hot growing season, about 150 days. Frilly white flowers bloom at night, attracting night pollinators such as hummingbird moths; exquisite! Fruit are pale green,12" tall, pear-shaped, and decorated with peanutty warts; enchanting! Harvest before frost leaving 1" stem. Some gourds dry out to an almost metallic gold, others are straw-colored - definitely a conversation-starter. My husband makes birdhouses to hang in our oak trees and the birds are happy to take up residence. Over the years the kids enjoyed camp-outs in the vine-covered tepee.We place a patio table and chairs inside for summer morning coffee and tea. Wish I could post a photo!

What are the pros? Hardy vine and good producer

What are the cons? Some less wartier than others.

Review:

Grew this gourd for the first time this year. It was a good producer with a hardy vine. Enjoyed seeing the development every few days of the warts. Good keeper as a decorative gourd- my kids loved touching it.
