Organic compost may be used as mulch for Loofah plants if grass
clippings are unavailable.
Only Loofahs that appear on vines in early summer will have
enough time to fully ripen, so you won't be able to salvage every
one. Solution plant extra.
Clean the fully mature specimens immediately after harvest or
store in a cool, dry location until ready to use.
If growing loofahs as an edible vegetable, harvest them before
maturity when the fruit is still green.
Luffa (Luffa aegyptiaca and Luffa acutangula), also known
as Looah, vegetable sponge or dishcloth gourds, are grown
mainly for their useful fibrous tissue skeleton. Eaten like a
squash when they are young and tender.
Young fruits can be eaten as squash, used in stews or even
used in place of cucumbers
Caring for Luffa is very similar to caring for cucumbers
or melons. Keep plants moist, but not saturated, and
provide sturdy support for best results as part of your
Luffa plant care.
Once the plants begin to grow, remove all the first
flowers, any male flowers and the first four lateral
branches. This will result in stronger fruit. Remove
Luffa fruit from the vine before the first frost.
