Product description

We have upgraded to an Organic Seed from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange for the same price. This is a top seller for us and we heard how important organic was and jumped at the chance when we saw it offered. 

Loofahs are members of the gourd family, originally from China. These handsome trailing vines can be grown on a fence or trellis or allowed to ramble at garden edges. Growing loofahs look like wrinkly big cucumbers. At season's end, when dry and mature, the rinds are simply peeled, revealing their sponge-like fibrous interior. Loofahs make marvelous skin scrubbers for stimulating circulation and improving skin tone in the bath or shower. Home-grown Loofahs make wonderful holiday gifts!
