Angled luffa, Ridged luffa Seeds (Luffa acutangula)

Price for Package of 5 seeds.

Luffa acutangula is commercially grown for its unripe fruits as a vegetable. Mature fruits are used as natural cleaning sponges. Its fruit slightly resembles a cucumber or zucchini with ridges. It ranges from central and eastern Asia to southeastern Asia. It is also grown as a houseplant in places with colder climates.

Uses

The young fruit of some cultivars are used as cooked vegetables or pickled or eaten raw, and the shoots and flowers are sometimes also used.[6] Like Luffa aegyptica, the mature fruits are harvested when dry and processed to remove all but the fruit fiber, which can then be used as a sponge or as fibre for making hats.
