|I think you know the Sherlock Holmes pipe. I want to make one like that, by myself, beginning from the seeds of Calabash's pumpkin (gourd). I've not been able to find the right seeds. Could you help me?|
|You could be looking for one of two trees. The calabash gourd grows on a tree, not a vine like most gourds. The calabash gourd grows on the Calabash Tree. (Crescentia cujete). Seeds for this tree are available at SBE Exotic Seed at http://www.seedman.com/seedban.... You could also be thinking of the Gourd Tree. It is a tropical tree spreading to 30 ft. or more and produces a large gourd fruit similiar to the Calabash tree. Flowering is nocturnal and occurs on the branches and trunk throuhout the year. It too is available from SBE at http://www.seedman.com/rain.ht... |
I hope this is what you are looking for.
