Product Overview

Lagenaria siceraria

What a unique, fun thing to grow! Used to make serving bowls, jewelry boxes, and many other beautifully decorated containers.

Once cured, hard-shelled gourds, such as Corsican, will last indefinitely and can be painted, carved, cut, or drilled as you would do with wood for dozens of craft projects. Carve them, leave the natural color, or paint these 6"–10" round and 3½"–5" deep gourds any color you want. Gourds may be sown 24" apart if trellised.

Variety Info

Corsican is a lagenaria type gourd. Mature green gourds are 6"–10" in diameter, and 3 ½"–5" deep; the shape resembles a wheel of cheese.

Sowing Inside

2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date, recommended for areas with short growing seasons. Sow in biodegradable pots that can be planted directly in the ground.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F, ideally 70°F.
