Large, warty, hard-shelled fruits appear in a variety of shapes and sizes, with colors including gold, orange, green, and ivory – some solids and some multicolors. 95-100 days from transplant.
Care: Plant 4-6′ apart in rows 6-8′ apart in full sun and well-drained soil. Grow on a trellis or fence for cleaner fruit. Leave on the vine as long as possible, until rinds have hardened. Bring in after the first light frost, before rains. Wash ripe gourd in diluted bleach solution, dry, then wax with floor wax and polish. Turn regularly while drying; takes about a month.
