Fruit left to mature on the vine can be used for luffa sponges.

Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well drained soil. Sow seeds after last frost in a warm, sunny location. The seed coat is hard and should be soaked in warm water for 24 hours or lightly scarified before sowing. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed.
