The Q&A Archives: Growing Gourds

Question: Could you please tell me if I can grow gourds in my area (zone 4-5)? If so, what kind?

Answer: Your gardening zone affords you 120-150 frost-free growing days. If you plant in a sunny spot, you can grow most any of the decorative gourds. If you're undecided about which one to grow, why not try Burpee's 'Fancy Gourd Mix'. The packet contains seeds for colorful yellow, orange, green and white fruits. Some with stripes, some bicolored, and all with different shapes. Order online at, or phone toll-free (800) 888-1447.
