Grow Gourds for profit

jagtigJanuary 3, 2009

If you are in Central New Jersey, especially West Windsor, and want to try a high-profit crop, here's my proposal.

I have saved about twenty- or thirty- pounds of gourd seeds.

I have also developed a system to clean the green gourds in the field.

The resultant 'muck' contains cucurbitin, a very powerful bio-chemical, which is also very useful in cosmetics.

The root contains an analgesic effective where headache, toothache and even high-blood pressure-related ailments are concerned.

Of course, the shells or husks can be fashioned into salable crafts.

I have designed a harvester, and need some capital or land backup to get started.

If you are interested, I would need only a few acres of land to get started.

I am in Penns Neck, West Windsor, however the land adjacent to the Canal in Somerset would be ideal, since it would be possible to 'hammerhead' an irrigation pipe under the road and water the crop in July. With such a system, one could water other summer-dying vegetable crops as well.
