Gourd (Ornamental)



Luffa Sponge:
A very vigorous vine. Excellent to exfoliate your skin, wash dishes, or clean your car windows! The vine is very
ornamental, producing clusters of yellow blossoms. The fruit grow to about 2’, and ripen to dark green in late summer. For sponge harvest they should be left on the vine until the skin begins to shrivel. Scrub the skin away, revealing the porous tan colored matter inside. They will be full of seeds; cut the gourd to desired size and shake out the seeds. They’re ready to use!
