Dipper Gourd (Lagenaria siceraria)


Check out our other listings!

  • Dipper is an open-pollinated, heirloom gourd that are used for making ladles, drinking vessels, birdhouses, and other decorative items.
  • Plants are wildly prolific and produce impressive numbers of fruits over the course of a growing season.
  • The fruit, which grow to around 12 inches in length and up to 10 inches in diameter, have a long neck (or handle) and a large bulb (or dipper) at the stem end.
  • We recommend growing the fruits on a trellis for a straighter handle, as fruits grown on the ground will have a pronounced curve.
  • 120 days to maturity.

Gourd Germination Guide

  • Transplant or direct sow.

  • If transplanting, start seeds indoors in cell trays or peat pots 3-4 weeks before the last frost. Sow 2 to 3 seeds per pot, thinning to the strongest plants once the seedlings have their first set of true leaves. Gourd seeds require soil temperatures above 70°F, so consider using a heating mat to provide the seeds necessary warmth to germinate.

  • Transplant after last frost when outdoor soil temperatures rise above 70ºF. Space seedlings 36-48 inches apart, in rows 48-60 inches apart.

  • If direct sowing, wait until after the last frost when soil temperatures are above 70°F. Sow seeds small hills, 2-3 seeds per hill. Space hills 36-48 inches apart, in rows 48-60 inches apart. Later, thin seeds to the strongest plants so you are left with one plant per hill.

  • For Cucurbita gourds, harvest mature fruits before cold weather sets in.

  • For Lagenaria gourds, harvest mature fruits in the fall after several freezes.

  • Dry harvested gourds for 3-6 months in a moisture-free, well ventilated location. Take care not to let the gourds touch one another during drying, and check frequently for rot and mold. Mold can be wiped clean, but any rotted or soft gourds should be discarded.

  • Drying is complete when the gourds feel light and hollow, and when the seeds can be heard rattling inside the gourd when shaken.
