Seed Savers Gourd Mixture

phantom_white(6)June 10, 2007

I got a pack of mixed gourd seed from Seed Savers for Christmas, and the pack doesn't give an estimated number of days until maturity. Since I want to harvest the gourds for Fall I was wondering if anyone could help me with planting times. It's my first time growing gourds so any help is appreciated!

You didn't mention whether they were ornamental, or hard shell gourds, but most mixed packages of hard shell gourds are of the 90 day variety. Some of the larger gourds have a 110, or 120 day germination period.

It doesn't specify what type of gourds they are, but thanks for the tips!
