White flowers?

Does anyone know what curcubit would produce white flowers? We have a "surprise" vine growing, and its doing wonderfully, but I have no idea what it is. Definitly something in the curcubit family though.

Most common is Lagenaria siceraria, the family commonly called hard shell gourds.

RE: White flowers?

thank you farmerdilla, this seed had to have come from a bird, the vine is huge, and still growing.


RE: White flowers?

Could you send me a pic of the fruit when it starts producing? I have been looking for seeds for one that we used to grow and if you pick it before the shell gets too hard and peel it they are great for stir fries and soups. Mine looked sort of like a birdhouse gourd but didn't have much indentation at the neck.
