Luffa Sponge Gourd

Heirloom Seeds Luffa Sponge dish rag Gourd


What can you say about a sponge that hasn’t already been written? After writing about 15,000 words for this year’s varieties, I am running out of things to say. Seriously, how cool is it to grow a gourd in your own back yard and then use it for a sponge. These are also called “Dish Rag Gourds”. These are easy to grow but take a long growing season to get there, about 110 days or so. Once the gourd is dry, you just peel off the outer skin and you have a very usable sponge. Everyone should grow this at least once. Luffa Sponge Gourds were one of the first things I grew as a kid.
