(OPEN-POLLINATED) 110 days. Very unique gourd! Excellent fall decoration! Apple shaped, 9 x12” green fruit covered in warts, weighing 4-7 lbs. Dries to a warm golden tan. Larger and more warted than bule type. Vigorous 15-35’ vines.
Gourds need to be planted early in your growing season. Leave on the vine until just before the first frost; they do not need to freeze. Pick when completely ripe, do not bruise fruit. Wash with a strong disinfectant to remove dirt and fungi – which may cause rot. Store in a cool dry place to cure out. Do not stack as they need air circulation.
