This was nasty eating unlike the Angled Loofah I grew in previous years. Might be something slightly different. I've no idea AT ALL where it came from in that particular bed but I have no room for a big vine there, especially if non productive, so it's gone. I've got a regular loofah vine for sponges.
It could be my seeds, but I don't know why my angled loofah gets old and tough before it reaches 30cm. To be sure they still young and edible, I need to harvest them max at 20 cm...
I have seen fruits that still looks young at almost 40+ cm in the shops!!
Angled loofah? Looks like it to me. We grow em at the school garden. Harvest young for soups and such -- later for the bathroom O(after drying and pealing) . Fun plant. Beautiful yellow flowers. Everyone should grow it. So productive! Kids love the options-- especially with the seed tunnels when all the seeds tumble out: great show.
Loofas are sold to eat at a much larger size than the fruits shown. Over 30-40cm.
