What are the pros? Whimsical, Cute, Storied
What are the cons? Takes up A LOT of space!
I grew these on a lark, but they ended up being a garden favorite for the whole family. Without even telling my kids, 12, 9, and 4, what they were called, they began spinning them on the table top! Perfect home-grown toys; hours of fun! One vine--ONE--produces upwards of 120 gourds. I quit counting, but even as the squash bugs began moving in, the plant still produced blooms, and hence, gourds. Began setting fruit in July, continued into September. Would be an excellent seasonal fence coverer, teepee, or sunflower house vine. Handsome, hearty, prolific, fun, and storied plant. What more could you want?
