Calabash Long
Lagenaria siceraria
 
Appox. 90-105 Days
 
Also known as: po gua, poo gua, kwa kwa, dudhi, hu gua, hu lu gua, opo squash 
 
This calabash gourd variety produces a long bat-shaped gourd that is most tender when picked 12-24" long. 
The light green skinned fruits have white flesh and are sweet and entirely edible when harvested at this immature stage. 
 
The gourd can be left to fully mature and the skin will harden. The vine is very vigorous and has white flowers.
 
Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well drained soil. Sow seeds after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. 
Train to climb a vertical support for better air circulation, straighter fruit and ease of harvest or leave to spread out on ground. 
 
Culinary tips: The immature fruit can be steamed and is delicious in stir-fry dishes or meat soups.
