Variants

A traditional choice in Chinese, South East Asian and Indian cuisines, tender, juicy young Luffa fruits are a delectably adaptable ingredient in stir fries, soups, curries or steamed. With a texture and taste similar to zucchini, Luffa soaks up the flavours it is combined with. An enjoyable match with fish, prawns, eggs, ginger, garlic, lemongrass or onion. Or, leave the fruit to mature and produce your own exfoliating loofahs!
  • Delicious all-rounder.
  • Tropical treat.
  • Bath loofahs.

Planting Tips
Soak seed in water for 24 hours before sowing. For best results, sow early in pots of Yates Black Magic Seed Raising Mix, indoors or in a glasshouse (a heat pad is recommended), then transplant after 3-4 weeks when risk of frost has passed. For direct sowing (soil temperature should be at least 21°C for germination), press 3-4 seeds into mounds of moist soil, 40cm apart. Later thin to the two strongest plants. Plant beside a strong trellis or fence (1.8m high) for support.
