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.
