Description

Calabash is a vine grown for its fruit, which can be either harvested young to be consumed as a vegetable, or harvested mature to be dried and used as a utensil. When it is fresh, the fruit has a light green smooth skin and white flesh. The gourd was one of the world’s first cultivated plants grown not primarily for food, but for use as containers.

Hint: Sow direct in garden or containers. Cover with Horti Seed & Potting Mixture. Keep moist. In Sun or semi-shade position.
