Birdhouse Bottle Gourd

$ 3.00

95 days.    This long-handled ball-shaped gourd can be hollowed out to make attractive birdhouses, a big dipper gourd, or musical instruments.

For thousands of years gourds have held limitless potential for human creativity. They can be turned into bowls, bottles, birdhouses, toys, cups, ladles, instruments, scrubbers, and anything else one could imagine. The fruit is usually not edible and should be left on the vines until the rind is dry and hard with a lightweight feeling. When the seeds rattle, the gourds are ready for crafting.

Contains 15 heirloom seeds
