When going by the shape of this vegetable, the name is hardly a surprise. This variety of bottle gourd is called the Lattu Ghiya in India and is cultivated differently too. Grown along a trellis that comprises wooden or metal bars as a means of support for the fruit to retain its unique shape. Consisting of all the qualities of bottle gourd, the bulb or pear-shaped variant too, is an excellent source of Vitamin C, B, zinc, potassium, magnesium and many other beneficial and life-sustaining nutrients. Being rich in fibre, its consumption works wonders as a remedy for constipation and flatulence. It also helps in lowering bad cholesterol levels. With a high water content, almost 94%, the vegetable can be consumed without having to worry about burning calories.

So go ahead and grow the freshest bottle gourd bulbs in your homes and farms. Whether cook as a curry with your favorite spices or extract its juice, but do make it a part of your regular diet.

Planting instructions

Sow the bottle gourd seeds in a tray first and then transplant into the garden.

Prepare your gourds for transplanting once the plants have come to no less than 1/2-foot in tallness

Prepare a decent developing medium. A decent, basic alternative is a blend of two sections fertilized soil, one section Coco Peat (CP) and one section Vermi Compost (VC). The dirt and VC furnishes your plant with the supplements it needs, while the CP blend holds the dampness.

Provide satisfactory support.
