12+ BUSHEL BASKET GOURD SEEDS PLUS very detailed instructions on growing them and drying them - how you decorate them is completely up to you and your imagination!
These gourds reach circumferences of 52 (and more) and are thick shelled! I've seen these called 'African Bushel Gourds', but am not sure that is a true name or something someone made up.
Make bowls or baskets from your gourds or leave them whole for a great conversation piece! Great fun for children and adults, alike! Easy to grow!
Each vine will get up to 20 feet and needs plenty of room to grow on the ground. Requires full sun and at least 120 days of warm weather to mature. Full growing instructions are included with the seeds, as well as instructions for drying the gourds.
Gourds cross pollinate VERY easily. I usually only grow one type of gourd at any one time so that I can eliminate chances of cross pollination. If you buy seeds from gourds that were grown near other gourds, you may not get true gourds from your vines! ASK BEFORE YOU BUY!
