This is a unique one of a kind gourd Whale. Many of the gourds I grow myself. Each gourd takes on a personality all its own and no two are exactly alike.
He is approximately 3 3/4 inches tall and measures 7 1/2 inches long.
He is stained ocean blue without hiding his natural coloring and sealed for protection.
He will be your favorite Beachy decoration and you will use him year after year.
Looks great in a grouping!
