Gourd Seeds – Martin Mixed with ? Flat Handle – READ NOTE in Description – 6 per packagePlease Read NOTE in Description
Martin Mixed with?
Size varies - approximately 13" tall
Note: This was supposed to be an extra-large martin according to the seed package. It obviously was crossed during pollination with something else. The handle on this is flat not round.
I Isolated and pollinated it with itself - however I cannot tell you what you will get. Whatever it is it should be a good size gourd and I am hoping we get some with the beautiful handles.
Qyt - 6 seeds
Our Seeds are all grown with the Isolation and Hand pollination method; we do not have any 3rd party growers.
Isolation and Hand pollination: This method is the most reliable to get genetically pure seeds. The female and male flowers are isolated with a bag or other method, then when they are both open the male flower is picked and is used to pollinate the female. The female flower is then re-isolated until the flower falls off, so that Mother Nature does not have access to the flowers at any point during the pollination time. Now even with this being said, there is still a chance that the gourd may not grow to be what we want. If the original seed was crossed before this planting then it may revert to one of the shapes that it was crossed with. But this chance will lessen with each generation. Therefore, the odds are much better with this method and you are much more likely to get the gourd shape that you wanted to grow.
