This is probably a good year for me to grow luffas again. I'm down to two dried but unused fruits from the last batch [of about 20]. Maybe I ought to try Corsican gourds, too. Are they terrestrial or climbers, Pam? And, while we're at it, what are those huge gourds I remember seeing at the Fresno county [CA] fair. They were about 30 inches tall and 24 inches in diameter, striped like a rattlesnake watermelon. Anyone know what those are?

Corsican gourds are awesome and totally perfect for making bowls. They
are round - about 8" in diameter and c. 4" tall. They're an earlier
producer than the luffas, so you might be able to grow them if you start
them in peat pots indoors. If not, I'll send you an extra one of mine.
With our long season - this is gourd country. Get my seeds form Pinetree
- www.superseeds.com. Love 'em.
