What is "Below Standard Seed"?
Simply put, it is seed that doesn't meet our state's (Utah) germination standard, a standard that varies slightly from seed to seed. Any seed intended for gardening that has a below standard germination rate cannot be sold alongside those that meet the state requirements (which often reflect the national requirements for germination).
We send samples of all our seed to theUtah Department of Agriculture, where they perform several tests to assess the quality of the seed. These state-wide and national seed standards are in line withAssociation of Official Seed Analysts(AOSA), which exist to ensure consumers that they are getting the highest quality seed, as advertised. Since this seed doesn't meet the state standard, we mark it as "Below Standard Seed".
Corsican Gourds grow 18-24‚ tall with long vines. Sow seeds indoors for transplant or directly outdoors. Space hills 6‚ apart in full sun in the spring. After 110-130 days, gourds are ready for harvest, and they can either be harvested green or left to continue to dry. These gourds are heavy feeders that require a lot of nitrogen.
Once these gourds are cured, they can be used for a myriad of decorative purposes. Paint the outer shell of the gourd. Corsican Gourd‚s outer skin is so flat. It takes paint well. It can be drilled and used as a vessel. This gourd makes a perfect bowl.
