    DESCRIPTION

    (Chinese Vining Okra, Vegetable Sponge, Dishcloth Gourd) The young gourds are edible and are eaten like okra, especially throughout parts of the South. If left to mature the fruits look like huge angular okra pods. (The bug-resistant plants are a great zucchini substitute!) These may be retted (soaked in water to soften while the soft tissue breaks down). Once retting is complete, they are cleaned and ready to use as sponges or filters. Pkt. (3 g, 20 seeds). 150 days.

    Package of 3 g, 20 seeds

    Good to start from seed in these months:

    North Florida: April

    Central Florida: March-April

    South Florida: March-May
