These gourds make handy vessels and, like the name implies, excellent birdhouses! Allow gourds to dry before carving them. They are easy to grow, treat them like winter squash, except budget more space, vines can really sprawl.

Certified organic by Quebec Vrai

Growing recommendations

These gourds can be grown just as winter squash would: seed three weeks before last frost. After danger of frost has passed, transplant out with lots of room - vines can reach 20 feet!

This is the most challenging and thrilling part of our work.

The trialing allows us to test varieties of a same species side by side and determine which one(s) taste and perform the best.
