Description:
With this plant it is possible to grow your own sponge. The young green fruits can be eaten fresh like cucumber, or can be cooked and eaten as a vegetable. However, if you keep the fruits attached to the plant or let them dry somewhere else, the fruits become light and can be used as a sponge. The fruits can grow up to 60 cm, and are among others used in Africa as a skincare product. The plant has its origin in India, grows fast, and can be kept as an annual plant in a cold greenhouse or at a sheltered, sunny place in the garden.

Sowing description:
Let the seeds soak for several hours in lukewarm water, and sow them in potting soil.

Sowing time:
November – June

Level of difficulty:

3e poging om zaadjes te laten kiemen, tot nu toe nog geen resultaat.

Ik heb geen enkel zaadje kunnen laten uitkomen. Heb op verschillende manieren geprobeerd. Spijtig.

Er zijn een paar zaadjes uitgekomen en ik kijk uit naar het resultaat van deze planten!
