As a comment about Sponge Luffa (Luffa cylindrica), dave wrote:

I grow this just as much as an ornamental annual as I do for its other uses. The large and plentiful yellow blooms are stunning and attractive to my bees. The fruit is edible when young and once ripened can be used for all the purposes that luffas are known for. Everyone should grow this wonderful plant.
