Latin Name: Luffa cylindrica

Days to Maturity: 130


Also called dishcloth gourd, luffas are used as sponges, washcloths, and to make strainers and filters. Lyndsey has selected for two years for early maturity and sponge strength. Harvest when skin starts to turn brown, or at frost, and soak in water for several days to allow skin to break down so it is easy to remove. Immature fruits can also be eaten and are a popular vegetable in many parts of the world. Luffas are naturally resistant to Cucurbit Downy Mildew. 230 seeds/oz. Grown by Lyndsey Walker.
