The light green skinned fruits have white flesh and are sweet and entirely edible when harvested at this immature stage. The gourd can be left to fully mature and the skin will harden. The vine is very vigorous and has white flowers.

Cultivation: Needs a long, warm growing season. Prepare fertile, well drained soil. Sow seeds in late spring/early summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Hill planting: Form soil into a 1-ft. diameter mound 3-4" tall. Space mounds 4-6' apart. On each mound plant 3 seeds. Row planting: See spacing info in chart. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Train to climb a vertical support for better air circulation, straighter fruit and ease of harvest or leave to sprawl on the ground. May need hand pollinating.
