Most folks are amazed to find out these luffa sponges grow in the garden instead of under the sea. They are wonderful for the bath, removing toxins and regenerating the skin. I read that they help varicose veins and cellulite by stimulating circulation. Your skin is your biggest cleansing organ.
The blossoms as well as young squash are edible.
They last a long time and can be washed and bleached with lemon juice or bleach and hung in the sun to sterilize. They also can be used for cleaning dishes, floors or cars without scratching.
They can also be recycled into mats or pillows when they finally wear down- A TRUELY GREEN PRODUCT!
They are not bothered by any insects so are very easy to grow but they do require a long season so start them early and transplant them out onto a sturdy trellis.
All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds. The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
