Seeds for Ash Gourd are easy to grow. We will send you healthy seeds. Then you need to sow them 2.5-5cm deep in good soil in groups of four seeds. As a general rule, groups should be spaced 100-150cm apart, with rows 250cm apart. A little water every day is enough. When leaves appear on the Ash Gourd creeper, thin seedlings to 5 cm or 7 cm in each group, keeping their fruits off the ground, Ash Gourds grow well on trellises and supports. Seedlings can be planted in trays, in pots, or on the ground. 


Indoors, ash gourds can be grown very quickly, but they require patience. A warm temperate climate is best for growing Ash Gourd, but it cannot tolerate frost. Therefore, do not try to grow in winter. As Ash Gourd creepers grow, flowering begins fifty to one hundred days after sowing. Around a week after the flowers have appeared, immature gourds can also be seen. Immature gourds show a little more care, but they're also edible when cooked.
