PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
 
Italian Collection of Vegetable Seed Open PollinatedWhat do these symbols mean?
(Lagenaria siceraria)
This edible gourd is at its best small, about 6" long. Fruit at this size will be slightly sweet and tender. Be sure to peel the skin and clean out seed cavity before cooking. If not harvested young they can grow up to 5' long. This is a very productive strain with white mottling on the gourd and leaves. The plants are vigorous vines. 60 days to young fruit.
GENERAL GROWING INFORMATION
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.
