85-95 days to maturity after transplanting. Benincasa hispida ’Oblong’. Oblong Gourd Seeds. Non-GMO cool-season annual heirloom. This oblong-shaped wax gourd can reach 20 pounds. The light green skin is covered with very fine hair and will form a white waxy powder when mature. This waxy layer forms over the ripe fruit and protects the melon allowing it to store for up to a year in proper conditions. The long growing season required is well worth the effort! This self-fertile plant has fruit, leaves, seeds, and flowers that are all edible. Approx 490 seeds/oz.
