~ planting ~

When to sow outside: 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost and when soil temperatures are above 60° F. When to start inside: Recommended for cold winter climates. 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Seedlings don’t transplant well - use pulp pots and transplant directly into soil after carefully removing bottom of pot. Special germination instructions: Soak seed 12-24 hours before sowing.

~ harvesting ~

For use as a sponge, gourds are ready to harvest when they turn brown, feel light, and rattle with loose seeds when shaken. In shorter season climates, harvest the gourds and dry them for about 2 weeks or until the skin hardens and they turn brown. In either case, then open the large end and shake out the seeds. Soak the gourd overnight or until the skin separates from the sponge. Remove the excess pulp and rinse in a 10% bleach solution. Allow to dry thoroughly.

~ additional instructions ~
- all seeds are heirloom, open-pollinated, organic & non-gmo (unless noted otherwise).
- detailed instructions are included with every seed package.
- inquire for discounts available on bulk quantities.
