Birdhouse Gourd-NEW FOR 2022!

This is a bottle gourd variety that is edible when young but when allowed to mature on the vine and turn brown, can be used to make  utensils, containers or birdhouses.  Pick them when they first turn brown and allow them to dry in a cool place after washing them with a mild detergent.  Once they are dry, store them in newspapers till the seeds begin rattling within. Drill a 2" hole on the side of the gourd and scoop the dried seeds and membrane out. Make smaller holes on top to hang the birdhouse.  Paint or varnish the gourds and hang them to attract your feathered friends.
