Birdhouse Gourd Seeds

(P) Pkt of 25 seeds
Item #00908-PK-P1


Grows on a long vine—perfect for a fence or trellis

Days to Maturity: 130 from direct sow

This smooth-skinned, nicely-rounded green gourd is just crying out to be a crafts project. Perfect for birdhouses, this Lagenaria (bottle-shaped) type is as fun after harvest as it is to grow. Very easy and heavy-bearing, the Birdhouse gourd is ideal for families, class projects, and craftspeople of all types.

Simply direct-sow the seed in a sunny spot after the soil has warmed up in spring. From mid to late summer you will "harvest" plenty of 12- to 15-inch gourds from vigorous vines reaching 40 feet tall. For best shape, support the vine with a trellis, fence, or other vertical fixture, so the gourds hang down with no "flat side."
