Second bloom

Saturday, August 8, 2009


This is the second time this loofah vine has bloomed.


The flowers seem a little different then the first time.

Hope we get some loofahs this time.

Loofas, like most concurbits...(cucumbers, gourds, squash) have male blooms that produce pollen and female blooms that produce fruit. This bloom seems to be male, as far as I can tell from the pic. The female blooms will be perched on the end of a miniature fruit. This plant family also produces male blooms for 1 to 2 weeks before they start producing female blooms...
