Looks just like giant apples!
Fun to grow. Survived our drought and a squash bug infestation.I got 6-8 fruits per plant.
OMG i love all of them
I love it I have a hole garden of apple gourds.
No fruit set
these plants were incredibly vigorous but not a single gourd set! They all fell off the vine before they were the size of golf balls.
