|I recently received a packet of mixed gourd seeds from a friend. sorry, it is not from Burpee. I think it's Pinetree seeds. Anyway, I was wondering if there was a way to determine which seeds yield which type of gourd. There are several different types of varieties and many look similar, and I don't have room in my yard to plant 50 gourd plants. Are there any vital characteristics in the seeds or young plants that would distinguish one type from another, so I may be able to get one or two plants of the several different varieties in the pack?
