Last year we had excellent harvest of Ash Gourd, 20+ kg (40+ lbs), all from just one plant. So I tried again this year, but we have not been very lucky. We got only one Ash Gourd so far, barely 1kg (2lb). Plant isn’t looking healthy at all to produce any more. I think it has to do with the seedling that we purchased this time, and may be that we palnted it in a smaller growbed.
I am starting to realize the importance of seed saving and sharing than always depending on external sources.
