Delicious and easy to grow, bottle-shaped gourds are great picked small, 4-6 inches and stir-fried, curried, boiled and in soup. They are used much like common zucchini. These are very easy to grow and have good disease resistance. The seeds can be used to make a vegetable curd, similar to soybean tofu.

What are the pros? Rampant growth, very fast!

What are the cons? Not enough gourds!

Review:

This is a fantastic vegetable! It is so hot and humid down here in Central Florida that all squashes really struggle and most fail entirely to produce anything worth eating. This gourd though has enough heft to grow fast enough to keep ahead of the leaf roller caterpillars which strip everything else bare. So far we have only had three gourds but the vines are only 10 weeks old so I hope we have many many more. I dont think any number would be too many, they taste like a combo of summer and winter squash while not being as watery as summer squash are. We picked the gourds at a pound in weight, about 7 inches overall length and they were as tender as we could wish for. Fried fast with onions, served over pasta with a sticky Chinese sauce, fantastic!

Review:

We started these indoors in peat pellets and they matured in peat pots on the window sile until secondary leaves showed. They trasfered well and and survived a slight cold spell and rains. We did these in amended soil in the ground and in containers and its done well in both.

Review:

This is our first gourd ever, and it was probably the easiest thing to grow this year. There have been no pest or any other problems so far, Though the hummingbird does like it. Make sure you give them plenty of room, or the vines will take over the entire trellis and then start climbing the nearby trees (Not joking lol). The taste is a little different from zucchini or yellow squash, and the flesh is a little more firm, but from what we have had it does taste like a squash. We are also going to leave some on the vine for crafts. Will grow again next year :)
