  Farm Grown Luffa
The amazing Luffa sponge gourd.  Farm grown with love.  Luffa fiber is a green renewable resource with many uses that will surprise you...Many people are surprised when they find out we grow Luffa sponges. “Don’t those come from the sea?”, is the standard question to which we respond that the Luffa is a vegetable you can grow in your very own garden!!!

A loofah, as it is commonly known, is a fibrous plant seed pod. The luffa plant is a cucurbit, a group of plants including gourds, pumpkins, and cucumbers. It grows as a flowering annual vine of subtropical Asian origin. The pollinated flowers grow cylindrical green fruits that eventually develop into a seed pod filled with many intertwined cellulose fibers. The outer skin is removed to reveal the "loofah" inside. (Not to be confused with "sea sponges" that are members of the animal kingdom. They grow on the sea floor and filter food out of the water)

USES FOR LUFFA SPONGES
These natural sponge wonders of the vegetable world have many uses. They'll make your skin squeaky clean or shine up your dirty dishes. Luffa are soft and edible when young and can be cooked and eaten like squash or okra. They turn into a tough mass of fiber when mature.

Luffas are excellent in the bath or shower. The exfoliating action leaves your skin feeling the cleanest and tightest it could possibly be. Having someone scrub your back with a luffa sponge is an incredibly pleasurable experience.
