Luffa Seeds

$2.50

Luffa aegyptiaca

This useful gourd can be utilized as a sponge for household cleaning and to wash & exfoliate the skin.

The ornamental vines produce many yellow flowers & have attractive silvery, dark green leaves.

Gourds are ready to harvest when their skin turns brown and the seeds rattle inside when you shake them.

To use as a sponge, peel off skin and remove seeds. Hang to dry between uses to help prevent molding.

20 seeds per packet 

Growing tips Luffa prefers warm temperatures. It grows quite happily in our greenhouse, but would also do well outdoors in a warmer environment. Provide trellising for its sprawling vines to ensure gourds aren’t touching the ground as they ripen. 


*All Sierra y Cielo seeds are organic, open-pollinated, & non-GMO. They have been hand collected from our gardens, where they have been adapted for 2+ generations.
