    Luffa Sponge Gourd 20 Seeds 

    Luffa cylindrica

    This type of squash while not strictly a vegetable can be eaten when young. 

    They are more commonly grown to use when mature and dried.

    The plants need warmth to grow successfully. Keep inside until all risk of frost is gone.

    They grow on vines similar to cucumbers.

    A large loofa makes a great back scratcher. Luffa can be cut into many shapes for scrubbing pads, padding, and other uses.

    This open pollinated gourd variety is also called Vegetable Sponge and Dishcloth Gourd because, once cured, skin can be peeled off to reveal a usable sponge! 

    Vigorous, rapidly growing vines from which fruit can be harvested over a long period of time. 

    Can be eaten when young like Zucchini.
