Also known as Spinning Top Gourd or Spinner Gourd.
Craftsmen and artists love Tennesse spinner gourds, Cucurbita pepo, because they are small and can be used in a number of ways. From jewelry, holiday ornaments, home decor items to toys. Tennessee spinner gourds range in size from one to three inches tall and are green with white stripes when fresh; they dry to a light shade of tan. Tennessee spinner gourds require a long, warm season, from 90 to 100 days, and lots of garden space on which to spread. Plant the gourd seeds in late spring.
