Da loofah!


Only took 4 months!

Anyone know how long it takes the fruit to mature?

It's been a few years since I grew them, but it's about 6 weeks... we always just left them on the vine till the frost killed the leaves. The last pic, with the loofah that's only a day or two old, is eating size... common in Asian cookery, they're used like okra. Once they start producing, they'll usually keep going.

i googled and it said 30 days... but i would assume it depends on your weather.
