green (undried) gourds

misma73August 21, 2007

Does anyone know if green (undried) lagenaria or similar gourds are available at this time of year? If so, where?

Thank you.

I want to try the niihau technique which requires green, not dried, gourds.

I don't know of anywhere that has them now, but in a month they will start selling them on roadside stands everywhere. Do you need them right now? Because if you wait a month I am certain you will have no problem finding them.

Oh and if you don't already I would recommend growing your own. They are a lot of fun to grow and I just picked on today to enter in the Maryland State Fair, so you can get them early if you need them.

Misma23, thank you for posting your question. I've just acquired some roughly 7-pound gourds, still in the green stage. I'd heard these have many uses and can be decorated, but have absolutely no experience in this area. I just researched the niihau technique and will definitely try it!

FYI, ours were havested today in Central New Jersey, so I expect that any grown in SC should be well-ripened by now. We had to leave many behind, though, severely damaged by an awful hail storm ... what a shame!
