Bushel Basket Gourds

Recommended Posts

In 2006 I grew a single vine and got 3 or 4 gourds. One of them I left laying in the yard, just to see how well it would hold up. It is still out there. I picked it up a couple days ago and it is still dry and intact with the seeds rattling around in it. A pressure treated board nearby has rotted in the same amount of time.

Ouch! on the price, but it seems normal. Definitely try to keep the seeds at that price.


Searched for them over at j l hudson seeds

Found: http://www.jlhudsonseeds.net/SeedlistLA-LE.htm

—Lagenaria siceraria Bushel Gourd. (10,h) LAGS-6B. Packet: $3.00 OUT OF STOCK

Very large round gourds, sometimes up to 4 - 5 gallon capacity. Used for containers, drums, etc. h = High germination - 70 - 100%

—Lagenaria siceraria Legendary Bottle. (e,g) LAGE-6LB. Packet: $3.00

Large gourds to 15 - 20" long and 10" wide at the base, & 5" wide at the neck. Very thick shell (up to 3/4" thick). e = 10 to 25 seed g = Good germination - 50 - 75%

—Squash Cucuzzi Caravazzi. (e,g) VSQU-CC. Packet: $2.50

An Italian favorite, the long pale green fruits can reach 6 feet, but are best when 2" thick and a foot long. Breaded, stuffed, or boiled like zucchini, Cucuzzi has a unique flavor that some prefer to any other squash. Actually an edible gourd (Lagenaria siceraria), the vines are extremely prolific and vigorous growers. Good trellised or grown on a fence.
