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.
