Days to Maturity: 140

Description:

Good production of volleyball-sized gourds on vigorous vines that are very resistant to Downy Mildew. Other gourds we grew in 2013 were completely killed by Downy Mildew but these were barely affected. It also grew and produced well in 2014. These are covered with warts like an Osage Orange fruit; when dried and washed they turn an attractive chestnut brown. The shell is exceptionally thick and is good for making sturdy wooden-like bowls. We used a band saw to cut them in half, but you can also use a hand saw. The contrast of the smooth inside and the warty outside is striking. They also make nice vases and containers. Takes a long time to cure – most aren’t ready till January or February. Original seedstock came from Seed Savers Exchange. 110 seeds/oz. Grown by Edmund Frost (home garden).
