263 Ciesielski, Bushel Gourd. I am trying a technique with the BG's that is similar to what I use with my melons. Long, skinny plants which are easy to cull. No sets yet. Whatever pollinates them hasn't shown up here yet. I don't want any sets yet either, it is way to early. When BG's are young they weigh like rocks. Hitting that perfect harvest date when the fruit have just stopped growing and haven't lost weigh yet is key to maximize weight. For some reason this plant seems big to me for such an early date, I will have to look back at my past diaries and see if it is.
