Single Packet of 45 Seeds
Grow a garden filled with Dipper Gourds, from freshly harvested Lagenaria siceraria seeds. Dipper Gourds are popularly used as a ladle or a large spoon. The fruits turn from green to brown as they dry, and can be carved after they solidify. Each gourd vine will grow to a length of about 6 to 12 feet long and are best grown vertically, by the use of a trellis or support. This prevents mold and mildew and also allows for better oxygen flow.
Gourd plants are categorized as annuals, meaning that they will grow quickly within a single growing season, only to produce their fruits and later wilt with the cooler temperautures of the Autumn season. Seeds can be collected from your Dipper Gourds if the fruits are left on the vine until they are dry.
