Description: Birdhouse gourds are easy to grow with massive vines (often 20 feet or more!) and abundant velvet white flowers swelling into 5 to 8 marvelously whimsical gourds per plant. If you’d love them to all to be similar shapes, send them up a trellis. And great news: an entirely separate genus/species than ‘classic’ winter squash, birdhouse gourds are less susceptible to powdery mildew and other prevalent squash diseases, making it easier to harvest all the more birdhouse gourds for you and all future generations to come.
