Rare and seldom (or never) offered for sale, these are seeds of wild gourds found in central Texas. The gourd shapes can be seen in the pictures and vary from almost round to resembling a crookneck garden squash or dipper gourd. Wild Texas gourds can cross with other gourd or squash varieties and produce random mutations like these, but it's not clearly understood. Doing a Google search will show just how much scientific and genetic research has been done on the Texas Gourd. These seeds aren't guaranteed to always produce a gourd with the long, pronounced neck, but a variety of shapes as seen in the pictures. These gourds will not rattle - the seeds are encased in a luffa sponge type center (see pic). Great for crafts, especially Christmas tree ornaments. Small gourds like these make fruit faster and dry much quicker than larger ornamental gourds and they have a good hard shell. Size of gourds are around 3 inches to around 6 inches. When dried, the stripes fade away. Should not be planted near garden squash, cucumbers or pumpkins. 30 seeds. USA sales only.
