Dipper Gourd Seeds Create your own art or craft
Lagenaria Sicerari
Narrow, slender neck with a round ballooning end: can be cut and used as a ladle or dipper when dried. Grow on a trellis for straighter, longer handles.
 

Gourd vines are extremely vigorous and require a lengthy growing season, usually5 to 120 days to maturity. Gourds are ready for harvest when the stems dry and turn brown, and the fruit is very light with a seed rattle. Harvest before a frost. This is a Lagenaria or hard-skinned gourd.

 Germination:

Indoors- 1” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature at 70 degrees. Transplant after last frost without disturbing the roots.

Outdoors- Plant 1” deep, after last frost, when soil warms to 70 degrees. Plant 2-3 seeds every 18-36” apart, with the large varieties the furthest apart.
