Gourds - Ornamental Small Varieties Mixed
Our gourds are a special selection of the oddest shapes and colors to please and attract everyone. Gourds are rapid growing climbers that can be grown on a trellis or allowed to run in the garden.
May also be planted among the corn. Cut from vines with Pruning shears leaving 3 inches of stem. Allow fruits to remain on vine until fully mature. Gather gourds before frost. Wax or shellac mature fruits for year round ornamentals and table decorations.
