Loofah, loofa, luffa – by whichever name, it’s an amazing plant that produces fruit like no other. Pamper yourself a little and grow your own loofah sponge. It’s great for exfoliating your skin, giving your body that healthy glow.
These vines are heat-loving plants and will not tolerate frost. Start your seeds off indoors and plant outdoors after any danger of frost has passed. For beautifully straight and blemish-free loofahs, train the vines up a trellis. Production is generous, so be prepared to gift some to friends and family.
