Opo - Extra Long Bottle Gourd


A Very Long variety of Bottle gourd grown throughout Asia. The fruits can reach a length of 6 feet with ideal conditions. This can be grown outdoors in the Uk but is best grown with protection


Sow the seeds under glass from mid Feb - April in 3 " pots.
Do not cover the seed and maintain a temp of 21 - 24 Deg C.
Germination will take between 15 and 20 days
Once germinated take care in handling and pot on into larger pots. These are best grown under protection such as a greenhouse or Polytunnel although they may survive on pergola type arrangements.

The Plants Grow very large and the fruits need to hang down. From my experience these do need a nice warm sheltered site in full Sun. They taste great in Vegetable Curry's !!

These plants will not require very much care apart from the warmth and a good feed every known and then.
