EDIBLE SNAKE GOURD SEEDS
One of our top three garden plants! These are so tasty, productive, and peculiar that we consider them a must grow. Our family even gets a meal out of each one, and they are stellar in stir frys. We offer 10 seeds per order.
As amazing as it is enormous, these Edible Snake Gourds are an incredible garden crop. They continually impressed us and also blessed us with a lot of tasty food. The gourds remain delicious at lengths exceeding three feet, although they can grow more than twice that long. Our first germination test reached 80%, so we’ll keep that in mind when we package them.
These gourds grow on long vines, and we find a very sturdy trellis or fence-line is a must. We erected a small “gourd tunnel” to grow ours, and they grew very well. It creates a very peculiar effect when you walk through a living tunnel full of gigantic enormous food.
We enjoyed ours when making stir frys, and I would either slice or dice the large gourds. When cooked, they remind me of the flavor of those tiny corns that are present in some Asian stir frys. Although we have a family of six already, we were able to get a full meal out of just one gourd. Interestingly enough, once I even forgot to season a Snake Gourd stir fry, and didn’t realize my error until multiple family members began to rave about the excellent flavor of the meal.
Since they produced so well off of just four plants, we had to preserve some for the winter. We simply sliced the Snake Gourds and added in a few other ingredients before freezing them in freezer bags. No further effort was needed, and it sure makes out winter stir frys a lot easier, since no prep is required.
If you like trying new foods that produce like crazy and taste incredible, I’d highly recommend trying these Edible Snake Gourds. We chose two hearty gourds to let grow to full maturity, and they’ve provided us with enough seeds to offer to others. The Edible Snake Gourds quickly became on of my top three garden plants, and they are already a family favorite. If you can get these growing in your garden, my guess is that you will not be disappointed. We direct sow ours after the last frost, and pick the gourds at two to three in length to keep them producing.

Shipping To These Countries
At the moment, we will be focusing on shipments within the continental United States only. There are many customs and import laws for many things, and seed shipments are some of the ones that can be tricky to navigate at times.
We will do our best to get all orders processed and shipped within a week from the order date, especially since we know how it is to eagerly wait for a package.
Returns & Exchanges
In the event of a unsatisfactory or damaged shipment, we will work with our customers to achieve the best outcome possible. While we do not accept cancellations or returns, we do want you to be happy with your purchase.
We strive to produce only the highest quality of items and expect them to meet or exceed your expectations. If, however, for some reason our item falls short, we will consider replacing the item free of charge and reshipping the item to you.
