This was our first dipper gourd collection made in 1982 at Topawa on the Tohono O'odham Nation. Gourds vary from 8" to 18" long and have a long thin neck and small bowl. Trellis the plants (or allow them to climb trees) to obtain straight-necked fruit. A large growout took place at our old Sylvester gardens where we had gourds hanging in the mesquite trees!  Approx. 2.5g/15 seeds per packet.
