Anyone Growing African Gourds?

gourd(Z8/9Sunset18 CA)September 17, 2003

Just wondering if anyone here is growing any of those big gourds that they show in the books at the library. Or where we can get seeds for those gourds that come from Africa.. I would love to order some or trade for some, I have 8 varieties of gourds.. Antoinette

I have been growing the great white boer pumpkin in Seattle with mixed success. Its certainly not a gourd (I don't think we get the heat for them here).

I like the stuff on this site but have yet to grow anything (I am floudering after ordering honeybush). There are SO MANY gourd seeds listed, inlcuding african ones.

What kind of gourd are you growing now?
