Giant Wax Gourd


Giant Wax Gourd
 
 Seed #320  Next Wax Gourd

This easy-to-grow winter melon lives up to its name — the plants produce very large fruit that weigh 30 to 35 pounds. The blocky and round shaped gourds are green with a white waxy coating. This giant wax gourd thrives in well-drained soils and hot temperatures, due in part to its extensive root system. Fruit keeps for many months off the vine, making it a staple in colder months. The skin will form a white waxy layer when ripe. Use the white flesh of this giant fruit in a chicken and wax-gourd curry, or get creative and use it as part of the presentation. Serve appetizers of finely chopped stir-fried vegetables, for example, scooped into small hollowed-out bowls made from the melon flesh.

  • Maturity: Approx. 100 days
  • Planting season: Late spring to early summer
