LUFFA, Sponge Gourd
Seeds per pack ~ 25
Germination: 91% (Packed for 2023)
An incredibly versatile and vigorous plant, Luffa can be eaten young and green in stir-fries or steamed, or of course it can be dried on the vine to make the wonderful bath sponges we all know and love. Be sure to give this Luffa plenty of room to room to climb a strong trellis and a long hot season (or start it indoors a few weeks before the last frost). Fruits grow up to 2' long! Our seed comes from Sheffield's Seed Company in Locke, NY.
