Item details

The Snake Gourd, Wild, Exotic, And Tasty

There are a couple of different types of Snake gourd, one is grown strictly for its ornamental value, a common use for many types of gourds. The other, discussed here, is Trichosanthes cucumeria, exotic and entertaining to grow, while at the same time finding many uses in the kitchen.

A Sci-Fi Monster? - The Snake gourd is appropriately named. It can achieve lengths of up to 6 feet and grows from rapidly spreading vines. Just the right combination for a science fiction movie, except the only danger the snake gourd might present would be getting a stomach ache from eating too much of it. Most gourds we are familiar with are either inedible, or not particularly edible, and are used for decorations, and at times for vases, bowls, or utensils. The one gourd we do eat plenty of is the pumpkin, a member of the gourd family. The squash is also a close relative. There are over 700 species of gourd, each one having a seemingly stranger shape or pattern of colors than the next.

**We ship all over, there are a few exceptions. WE DO NOT SHIP TO AUSTRALIA or ISRAEL or mexico!!!

**All orders will be shipped out on the next day via USPS. No exceptions to change the USPS...they are my preferred way. I ship three times weekly. If you need them sooner, please pay for upgraded shipping.

**Please note that all packages are sent out through USPS with a tracking number. Once I mail a package, it is OUT OF MY HANDS and into the hands and care of the post office. This is why tracking is done. It helps the buyer track their packages online and at USPS.com. If you are unsure of your postal delivery people, PLEASE BUY POSTAL insurance.
** AS OF THIS DATE: September 7, 2017, I am no longer going to be held accountable for the lack of their delivery skills. If they break the packaging I ship it to you in, that is their responsibility to replace. I cannot hand deliver each package therefore i cannot guarantee their handling of each package i send out.

** All the delivery times that etsy list are not guaranteed by me. These are suggested time frames not actual ones. I ship three times a week but I do not guarantee any delivery times unless you upgrade to priority.

**ALL international mail is mailed out with a customs form and all information is on it. Once it is mailed from there, It is out of my hands. Sorry. Please note: ONCE I MAIL YOUR PACKAGE TO YOU INTERNATIONALLY, I CANNOT CONTROL WHEN THE POSTAL SYSTEM DELIVERS IT TO YOU. Some countries can take weeks or months to deliver. This is out of my hands and no refunds are given for packages undelivered unless you file a claim with the post office. Please get insurance or pay for upgraded priority delivery if there are any questions for you.
