Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Known as a warm season annual, gourds do best in full sun and require ample amounts of water and soil rich in organic matter. If gardening in a short-season climate, start indoors 3-4 weeks prior to planting. Transplant outdoors when all danger of frost has passed, and soil temperatures have warmed.
Harvest when the stems dry out and turn brown. Use a sharp pruning knife to cut the fruit, and at least 2-3 inches of the stem, from the vine. Discard any fruit that is bruised or rotten.
