Luffa Sponge
Luffa aegyptiaca

130 days — Also known as 'Dishrag Gourd', 'Dishcloth Gourd' and 'Vegetable Sponge'.  Since it requires a very long, hot growing season, most areas will need to start the plants indoors. Plant out in well manured, fertile soil. The fruits are twelve to fifteen inches long but can reach thirty inches.

When young (under six inches) they are eaten like zucchini. At maturity, when dry, they are peeled, cleaned and used as fibrous bath sponges or exfoliating scrubbers. Each packet contains three grams.
