These are organically grown Luffa aegyptiaca heirloom seeds grown by
me. They grow very good quality loofahs with denser fiber than many
homegrown varieties. The outer wall has a squeezable foamy feel. This
variety came to me from a family I know in south Louisiana where they've
been grown for generations. This
type grows slower than some
varieties and is best suited for areas with 180 or more warm frost-free
days. The seeds are cleaned, sorted by hand, and stored in a
refrigerator shortly after harvesting. Included is a printed sheet with
luffa growing instructions. This past year there were 25 seeds for $5
and 50 seeds for $7. Free shipping. NOTE: Due to
drought the yield had been extremely low for the 2016 season.
Seeds for 2017 planting are sold out. Check back here in November for
Large whole loofahs and loofah sections with a diameter about 4 inches. Average length of whole loofahs is over 20 inches. Loofah sections are available in 6 and 10 inch lengths. The diameter is about 4 inches. All loofah is unbleached and compressed flat for shipping. When wet the loofah material will expand into shape. Once expanded the core is semi-rigid with many soft flexible fibers on the outside making these the ultimate bath and shower sponges. Great for scrubbing your back. Loofah sections are good for hand scrubbing or making loofah soap. Photo shows compressed and expanded loofah. Imported from Loofah Savannah in Egypt.
