Yes, this really is a gourd — a perfect apple-shaped variety just begging to become part of your autumn decor or a gift basket for your favorite teacher! Up to 7 inches in diameter and so realistic you might be tempted to take a bite, these gourds are destined to become the centerpiece of your autumn table!
Hard to find but very easy to grow, Big Apple yields up to 20 fruit on every vine. Simply direct-sow the seed in a sunny spot after the soil has warmed up in spring. From mid to late summer you will “harvest” plenty of gourds from vigorous vines reaching 20 feet tall! Let them dry right on the vine, or pick them and let them dry out before using them in crafts. For best shape, support the vine with a trellis, fence, or other vertical fixture, so the gourds hang down with no “flat side.” Pkt is 25 seeds.
