More details about this item

This desert-dwelling gourd can be grown as an ornamental ground cover under very difficult conditions. They are native to the Chihuahuan Desert, so you know they are tough. A single spawling vine with its gray green leaves and bright yellow squash-like blossoms can cover 400 square feet. The foliage has a very strong odor, so it is not something you would plant next to the house. It is a perennial where the ground does not freeze hard. We grow Buffalo gourds for fall decorations because the 3 inch, hard-shelled fruit keeps its beautiful color for six months or more. The gourds themselves are not edible, though I've heard the seeds are and were roasted by the native people of the desert. Approximately 30 seeds per packet.
