My favorite retired/ not really, person, Carol from CarolCooks2 introduced me to luffa plants.
Not sure if the loofah is a fruit or not, but they are an unusual plant.
I always thought loofahs were sea sponges! I really did! Till she explained it to me! Thanks, Carol!!
Anyway, so DD1 volunteered at a nursery, Sow Exotic, and was given some luffa babies. And lazy me, didn’t take pix of the pretty yellow flowers. But here’s the gourd!
. Not sure if this is already too big to cook with. Carol can tell me!
I’ll check in with you when we make the loofah!!
Just in case you’re wondering, yes that is a piece of an old baby gate!
