105-125 days. Speckled Swan gourd is a very unique looking variety that is shaped very similarly to an actual swan. The gourds have a large round base that narrows to a long curved neck and a drooped over bulbous top. They are dark green with white speckles. Gourds grow 5-8" wide at their rounded base and have a 12-16" neck. They can weigh 5-15 lbs. They are fully mature 105-125 days after sowing seeds, and are an excellent decoration with a nice color before they are dried, although they will last much longer after being dried.
Plant after all danger of frost has passed as you would large winter squash or pumpkins. Plant seeds or starts in clusters or 'hills' 2 to 3 seeds or a single start per hill with 5-8 feet between hills both directions. Hills can be slightly raised to improve drainage in wet climates. Alternately, plant 2-3 feet apart in rows 4-6 feet apart. Harvest in fall after the shell gets hard. Allow to cure for 1-2 weeks in warm dry place before painting.
One of many gourds in the bottle gourd group, this strain can be grown suspended from a fence or support to straighten the neck or handle. Although edible, the flavor is not impressive.
