Description

Caveman’s Club Gourd Seeds 5337. Open Pollinated.

Approx. 10-11 seeds/pkt (5-7 seeds/gram)

Named for its unique, large, club-shaped gourd. The fruit dries to a woody colour and texture, typically reaching 45 cm (18″) in length but can be up to 1 m (3′) in areas with long growing seasons. Grows 15-30 cm in height. Best results are achieved from directly sowing into a sunny, warm, well drained garden in June. For cleaner fruit, vines can be trained to grow on a trellis. Cut ripe fruit from the vine when it becomes firm and no longer yields to to hand pressure. Be careful not to bruise the fruit.

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.

SCOUT IPPM

OSC Seeds recommends using SCOUT IPPM to evaluate pests and pollinator populations in your cucurbit crops. Developed in partnership with the University of Guelph and Pollinator Partnership Canada, the SCOUT IPPM app uses scientific data and government guidelines to set action recommendations for growers. Free download is available on App Store and Google Play.
