(Luffa aegyptiaca) Burpee’s 1888 catalogue said, “A natural dishcloth, and a most admirable one. Many people prefer this as a dishcloth. The fruit grows about 2’, and the vine is very ornamental, producing clusters of yellow blossoms, in pleasing contrast with the silvery-shaded, dark green foliage. In the North, this variety requires starting in a hotbed. The dried interiors of these gourds have already become an article of commerce; grown in Florida, they are sold by Philadelphia and NY druggists.” Tasty cooked like okra when young.
