What is green then gold then brown then cream, eaten when it’s small and then bathed with? It’s a Loofah gourd! (pronounced ‘Loofa’ and also spelt ‘Luffa’)

We just got in fresh Loofah seeds! The vine itself is simply lovely! Bright yellow flowers and a happy habit of climbing means there is more room for your other plants! These also die down after fruiting (endlessly for the entire season) so you can use them as a screen in the warmer months and they will be gone before you need the extra sun.

They grow into the best bath sponge ever too! But you can also eat them, if they are less than 7 inches long, they are great eaten like squash and make a yummy cucumber substitute in salads!

LARGE SEEDS, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.
