Plant Features

Luffa gourd plants are fast growing vines that require a long, warm season to produce. This heavy yielder puts out many gourds that will reach 2 feet in length. Left to dry on the vine, these gourds can be opened and peeled to reveal natural, biodegradable shower sponges. 

We grow our Luffa Gourd Plants organically and guarantee them to arrive alive and thriving!
