Product Information Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Birdhouse Gourds are green, hourglass-shaped fruits eight to ten inches long.

Their slow maturity rate ensures a low growth cycle and high nutritional content. Decorative, fresh, and extra functional when made into a birdhouse!

These gourd seeds promote sustainable gardening and are perfect for creating a unique birdhouse that stands out as an attractive ornament in the garden. They can also provide a fun project for children to paint funny faces on them. An excellent activity for the whole family, birdhouse gourd seeds let you create custom art pieces that will make your garden stand out.

To dry gourds, wait until fruit is fully developed and hard enough to pick from the vines. Pick before frost. To preserve, avoid brushing and wash thoroughly. Store in a dry, well-ventilated place until thoroughly dried out and hard. Can then be waxed or painted.
