  • Information
  • Cucurbita pepo. Small Fruited Gourds are commonly referred to as Ornamentals, often seen decorating fall fireplace mantels and dining tables and Thanksgiving cornucopias. Closely related to Squash and Pumpkins, Gourds need lots of room to ramble and a hot growing site in full sunlight. They may be started outdoors directly in the garden after all threat of frost has passed. Harvest Ornamentals before the first frost, as soon as they have matured into full color. To cure them, store them in a warm, dry room for five to seven days, then shellac them for prolonged fall decorations. Bee friendly. Deer resistant.

    Average seed life: 3 years.
