Gourds are most often dried and used for decoration though some varieties, such as luffas, have a specific and functional purpose. Spreading over a large area, the rapidly growing vines need a good deal of garden space. The smaller varieties may be trellised to save space. These heat loving plants produce dense foliage and odd-shaped fruit with unusual markings. Gourds are easy and fun to grow.

Packet sizes vary from 2-3 grams depending upon seed size. These large packets allow you to save your seeds for two seasons. Gourd seeds will germinate well for more than 2 years. You'll have plenty of seeds to grow a large variety of gourds. You can also easily save your own seeds from the dried gourds that you grow.
