There is a type of ridged luffa that is known as vining okra. When the fruit are young they are ridged like okra and very tender. Seed are available from the following sources:

Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, P.O. Box 158, North Garden, VA 22959
(804) 973-4703 (phone orders); (804) 973-8717 FAX;

Sunrise Enterprises; P.O. Box 1960; Chesterfield, VA 23832; (804) 796-5796

Plant and care for vining okra seeds like you would squash or a gourd.
