GOURD: Plant gourds if for no other reason than because they're fun! They come in a delightful, wacky array of shapes, colors, and sizes and are sure to bring a smile when you harvest them. Many will grow up fences and trellises, which makes them even more interesting and dramatic.
Hedgehog Gourd: Actually a cucumber relative, this small, striped, spiny fruit looks great mixed with ornamental gourds. Will keep for several months. Organically grown. 85 days. Proper name: Cucumis dipcaseus
