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? Grows vigorously

What are the cons? Can take over garden

Review:

The plants grew almost by themselves and produced vigorously. The gourds were best tasting when picked young.. Produced for the whole season until frost. Definitely will plant again this year.

What are the pros? Pest resistant, luscious plant

What are the cons? Absolutely none!

Review:

These are seriously the most fun plants I’ve grown. I love vines, and these didn’t disappoint, even producing vegetables through it! The vines grew huge, about 20 or more feet long, and the gourds are so fun to grow! A little on the bland side for taste, they resemble a watered down zucchini for taste. But they look so cool! I would definitely recommend them. Leaves are also very big, making an aesthetic look to them. And most importantly, NO pest problems!! These are the first vine plant I’ve grown that has zilch pest problems. For those of you like me who love zucchini and summer squash yet have squash vine borer problems, grow these. A little bland like I’ve mentioned, but you will overlook that with the joy you have at seeing NO wilted vines from them.

What are the pros? Good raw and cooked.

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew this on trellis in wet ole Volcano HI in the summer and it did very well. The typical white Downy mildew but the plant was prolific in fruit regardless. Try this raw, I think it's better than cucumbers which the melon fly makes those too hard to grow, but the flies don't bother these guys. The size is perfect for a 2-4 person meal.

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!
