THIS IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE VEGETABLE FOR CLEARING SUMMER HEAT OR SUNSTROKE FROM THE BODY AND IS A NATURAL DIURETIC. IT’S APPEARANCE CAN BE SIMILAR TO THE FUZZY GOURD. FOR REMEDIAL PURPOSES, MAKE SURE THE SEEDS ARE SMOOTH WITHOUT RIM.

 GROWING GUIDE:

BEST TEMPERATURE 25-30 DEGREES. SOAK SEEDS FOR 24 HOURS , THEN PLANT IN SEEDLING BED 3CM DEEP. TRANSPLANT THE SEEDLINGS TO WELL MANURED AND WELL DRAINED SOIL WHEN 4-6 LEAVES APPEAR. SPACE WITH 50CM BETWEEN PLANTS AND 360CM BETWEEN ROWS. LEAVE TO SPRAWL OVER OPEN GROUND AS THE FRUIT IS VERY HEAVY.

GERMINATION:5-6 DAYS

MATURITY: 90-120 DAYS, WHEN COVERED IN WHITE POWDER.

To avoid lower germination rate, please store the sealed packet in a cool, dark & dry place and plant the seeds as soon as possible.

The picture on this packet is a general guide only. Due to differentcountries of origin and cultivar, the end product might not be exactly the same.
