Very large round or egg shaped gourds with thick shells, the largest in our collection. Donated by an Iowa grower who received them in the late 80's and knew them as African Drum Gourds. She grew 50 to 90 pound gourds of this variety on the site of an old chicken coop. The vigorous plants require a long season, lots of water, sun, and rich soil to achieve full size. As plants get larger, rotate carefully to keep from flattening under their own weight. Approx. 3.5g/15 seeds per packet.
