• Hawaiian Ipu Gourd


    There are only 3 items left in stock.

    This listing is for FIVE (5) Hawaiian Ipu Gourd seeds.  This seed is shipped DRIED. All of our seeds are Maui sourced.  This gourd is not edible, it is grown for use as the traditional drum used by Hula dancers.  
    Here is a Wikipedia link with more information about this interesting and useful Hawaiian gourd:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ipu
    Grow this vine the same as any other gourd, in warm fertile garden soil.  Keep watered + warm.  Your Hawaiian Ipu Gourd vines will produce slender white flowers that become the Ipu gourds.  Your vine will dry up and die back once your Ipu gourds mature, this is normal.  
    Growing instructions are not provided with or after you receive your fresh Maui Seeds safely.  Please plan on researching how to grow (and any other plant) that you wish to grow in your Garden/particular growing situation.
    We had a 100% germination rate starting the Ipu gourd seeds with the damp paper towel in a plastic baggie method.  It takes 10 days to start to see a root develop.  It will take several weeks longer to see an actual seedling above the soil surface once planted.
    Ipu Gourd needs lots of room to grow and 75-85 degree temps.
