Ornamental and useful. Gourds are fun and profitable. Use them to make birdhouses, dippers, bowls and pipes. Good for centerpieces and harvest arrangements. They need lots of sun. Train vines on trellis or fence. Cut when ripe, leaving a 3 inch stem, wash and dip in alcohol to remove any fungus. Give plenty of time to cure. A packet plants about 30 feet.
