Wild Luffa

M012

Luffa operculata. From dooryard gardens along the Rio Mayo. Produces dozens of 2-3" fruit. Once dry, remove the thin skin to reveal the small scrubber “sponge.” In low desert, plant with summer rains. The small yellow flowers and unusual fruits makes wild luffa an attractive plant for a trellis. Approx. 25 seeds (1.5 g).
