Growing Luffa for our Homestead

You've probably heard of a luffa sponge and you might have even used them.  Did you know that a luffa sponge is actually a gourd?  Luffa is one of our favorite crops to grow.

https://www.marysheirloomseeds.com/collections/heiloom-seeds/products/louffa


From Mary's Heirloom Seeds, How to Grow Luffa from Seed

What is a Luffa?
Luffa (Luffa aegyptiaca and Luffa acutangula), also known as loofah, vegetable sponge or dishcloth gourds, are grown mainly for their useful fibrous tissue skeleton. Young fruits can be eaten as squash, used in stews or even used in place of cucumbers.
Growing luffa is really fun but it definitely takes patience. Luffa is cold sensitive and takes a long time to mature into a dried sponge.  From seed, Luffa takes 120-200 days to fully mature.

Here's a recent update of my Luffa.  This was taken 1 month ago so I'll have to post a new video soon




Mary's Heirloom Seeds offers a starter kit for beginners OR you can just buy the seeds
