Kikinda Competition Strain Edible Gourd
Big Apple Gourd
Tennessee Dancing or Spinning Gourd
(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 introduced to us by Mr. Junior Gordon of Primm Springs, Tennessee. These gourds can be spun on either end but traditionally were held between the thumb and forefinger with the neck down and with a snapping motion made to spin on the neck end. Mr Gordon recommends that seeds for planting should be selected from the tiny gourds that have the straightest and shortest neck thereby preserving the unique shape that gives the gourd the potential to spin and hence, its name. Thank you Mr. Gordon for sharing with us this old heirloom variety from Tennessee!
