Why are my gourds thin-skinned ?
Is there any reason why my gourds are all thin-skinned rather than thick? I was told that given certain conditions gourds can become thicker-skinned. Is that true or am I just growing gourds which are naturally thin-skinned?
I usually sow the seeds during our monsoons in June - Sept. That is traditionally the time when all gourds are grown here in Mumbai (India).
