Gourd Luffa Sponge 4 Pack
A standard sponge gourd also known as Vegetable Sponge or Dishcloth Gourd. These sponge gourds were grown by David's Garden Seeds on their farm in South Texas. They are Non-GMO. There are no chemicals used in producing these sponges. We just harvest, peel and try to shake all the seeds out of them. We do not bleach them. Sizes, shapes and even colors vary. They are about, and we say about since an exact measurement is impossible,12 inches long, by 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Most are tapered.
Luffas can be used in a variety of ways as a food source, skin scrubber and home cleaning sponge. The dried fibrous skeleton of the gourd also makes a great natural craft material. You can create fiber crafts, mixed media art projects, and home items using luffa gourds. It will last about as long as you take care of it. Wash it and dry it. When it finally used up, you can add it to your compost pile. You can eat luffas when they are small but I don't know about eating something that turns into a sponge.
