Hi Rod you answered a couple with the last post, and i would love to try a couple of seeds out of that long gourd if you have some to spare. Also a squash question. I went to visit a guy in NSW who had a few of your 296 kg ? squash seeds. He gave me 2 I was wondering has it been grown, if so did it grow some big green ones ?
Cheers Phillip

ok pipster yes i will have seeds from this long gourd and am willing to share them. To do with the 296 kg squash it was open polled and grew off the 800 neily because i could not get any controlled pollinations to set that seems to be a common problem here with the green ones they seem to have a mind of their own. I didnt plant any of this seed myself and havent heard of anybody else growing it yet
