Family: Cucurbitaceae

Variety Information: Corsican is a lagenaria type gourd. Mature green gourds are 6″–10″ in diameter, and 3 ½”–5″ deep; the shape resembles a wheel of cheese.

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F, ideally 70°F.

When to Start Inside: 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date, recommended for areas with short growing seasons. Sow in biodegradable pots that can be planted directly in the ground.

Days to Emerge: 5 – 10 days

Seed Depth: 1″

Seed Spacing: 2–3 seeds per mound

Thinning: When several leaves, thin to 1 per mound

Harvesting: Hard-shelled gourds should remain in the garden as long as there is any life left in the vines. Some gourd growers leave gourds in the garden during the winter, which adds to their characteristics for craft projects. Use a sharp knife or pruners to cut stem leading to gourd, leaving 1″–3″ of stem for a handle.
