Teaser: Unique looking spoon-shaped fruits with dark green and golden-yellow banding patterns.
Description:

Unique looking spoon-shaped fruits with dark green and golden-yellow banding patterns with up to 5 bands at full maturity. Mature fruits average 10 cm (4.5") length. Grows much like squash and cucumbers. Direct sowing seeds into warm, well drained soil is best where the growing season is at least 100 days long. As seeds do not germinate well in cool soil, late sowing typically does better than early sowing. If you need to get a head start, plant seed indoors into peat pots. Leave pots in a warm, brightly illuminated place. As gourds resent transplanting, we recommend using plantable peat pots that can be directly planted into the garden without disturbing the roots. You may want to try growing the vines on a low trellis.

How To Grow Gourds are a hot weather crop. They need full sun and deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Directly plant seed outdoors in late May to June 2.5 cm (1") deep in hills 2.4 m (8') apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. They do not transplant well--use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil. Protect mature fruits from frost and cold temperatures.
