This hard to find perennial produces stems that trail along the ground, along which small, round gourds form. The baseball sized gourds are attractive when green, and turn a pretty yellow color when allowed to stay on the vine. The leaves a re thick and grayish green.
Native American tribes have used buffalo gourd for at least nine thousand years. The roots, stems, and leaves were, and are still used for a variety of medicinal needs and the edible cucurbitacin-free seeds were were roasted or boiled, and ground into a meal. Buffalo gourd seeds are also high in protein (22-35%) making them comparable to some legume seeds.
The perfectly round approximate 4" gourds are much sought after by artists and artisans of the Southwest for its potential as an art material. Whether with paint, knife, or wood-burner, Dremel, the gourds can be transformed into the most amazing pieces of artwork imaginable. Perfect for round ornaments.
A research discovers the important resources of buffalo gourd’s past, it can be expected this plant will become a valuable asset to the future. Zone 5-10.
