Long Handle Dipper Gourd Seeds
This packet contains about 15 seeds. These seeds are a part of our Summer planting season list!
The long handle dipper gourds are easy to grow and produce good yields. If you want them to grow straight, try growing them on a trellis or fence. These are popular with the older generation of the Cherokee people. Gourds are used in crafts as birdhouses, gourd rattles, dippers, ladles, and more! Harvest after a few frosts, the leaves should be brown and the skin color should be faded. They do require a long drying period with good ventilation for 3-6 months.
