Here is the Luffa Sponge Gourd, Luffa aegyptiaca. It is also known as the Dishrag Gourd, Dishcloth Gourd and Vegetable Sponge. It is cultivated and eaten as a vegetable, but must be harvested at a young stage of development to be edible.The fruits typically reach twelve to fifteen inches long at maturity but can reach thirty inches and 4 to 7 inches in diameter! Plants don't get to much bigger then 20 feet long bot can get longer in warmer climates. we also found it possible to winter the lower half of the plant for a second year of sponges! Now luffa's are edible but we did not care to much for them but rather use them in the shower for a body scrub. If you never grew luffa before then try it at least once to experience this wonderful vine. its a long season plant as well so start seeds in doors in February.  Open pollinated 140 days.
