Green Gourd Luffa Long Seeds - Sponge Gourd Seeds- Edible Luffa - Dish Cloth Luffa - Luffa aegyptiaca Seeds
Luffa gourds are an incredible vegetable that redefines multi-use! Not only can you eat these gourds, but they double as a useful tool in the shower as well. A mature luffa gourd can be dried out and used as an exfoliating shower sponge - as you can see, the luffa is not your average gourd!
That's right, you guessed it, your favorite bath sponge is a Gourd! Luffa Gourds can be grown from freshly harvested Luffa aegyptiaca seeds in the Summer for an Autumn harvest. Luffa Gourds are primarily grown on a trellis in order to save on gardening space since the fruits aren't very heavy. The outer shell is dark green, while its inner core is soft and string-like. Peeling the outer shell away will expose the usable bath sponge that you know and love. The plant can grow anywhere between 6 and 12 feet long and grow to a mature height of about 24 to 30 inches tall. The leaves resemble that of a Pumpkin plant, and each vine will develop yellow flowers, prior to your Luffa Gourd fruit formation.
