Also known as a "Calabash", these gourds are 5 inches in diameter, 12 inches long, and shaped like a penguin. Ideal for craft projects as a little black and white paint turns this gourd into a penguin easily. Gourd plants are extremely vigorous and require a long, warm growing season, ranging from 95 to 120 days to maturity. Harvest before a frost.
