Open PollinatedWhat do these symbols mean?
(Lagenaria siceraria)
This gourd grows from 30-50 lbs. and the fruit is dried to make large baskets and decorations. Crafters love its unusual shape. 125 days.
Dry and use as decoration, birdhouses, etc. 10-15 days, 70-75F. Start early indoors in pots and transplant after last spring frost. Soak seeds in warm water overnight before seeding. Germination rates can be improved by clipping a shallow slice (with toenail clippers) off side of seed near the pointed end. Can also be seeded directly in the field in warm climates after soil temperature is 72F.

Sowing: Sow seeds in a sunny location when all danger of frost is past, or indoors 3-4 week before the last frost.
Care: Water regularly and fertilize when lateral runners begin to spread.
Harvest: To eat pick when fruits are small. For gourds allow fruits to ripen on the vine. Pick carefully.
