My 370 was putting out what looked to be bg x lg females. I pulled the plant.

I noticed the same thing after you brought up females.Mine are bratwurst shaped shaped-looks like the wrong rooster got in the hen house

I figure those bg x lg ones will some day breed into something bigger... I might plant one on purpose next year...

The barlow 370is listed as a sib cross.Hes got a different seed listed as crossed with a lg. I'm gonna yank mine dont want that pollen near my 384 terry plant.I have a second 370 barlow plant that is in another location. It doesnt have females yet so still waiting on that one.

I am growing it, but it had a late start so it's just now starting to run. I'll report my findings when I get a female

I spoke with Caleb regarding this, his record indicates that it was a sib cross, but he was using lg pollen on others and suspects that he mistaken the cross on the 370. his 370 has shown blocky/round/football shapes.

The 326 was supposed to be crossed with a long gourd. I figured I was one of the earliest to have females.

Ok so I’m going to keep the plant growing cause it’s too late to start a new one.....my question is if I enter it as a bushel gourd will it be disqualified? Being it’s not pure?

The rules don’t state it must be a bushel gourd. I think it says heavy gourd. So you should be ok to enter it.

Cool, well I’ll see how big I can grow one:-)

If I'm reading this right on GPC site seems like it does need to be a pure bushel gourd? https://gpc1.org/about/rules/bushel-gourd/ Site seems to call out a specific genus/species and description.

Lagenaria siceraria... that’s a bottle gourd. What??

It's all the same. Hard shell gourds. Long, bushel, bottle, calabash.. Luffa is an example of a non lagenaria gourd. You won't find any gourd outside of lagenaria that is close to as heavy as they are.

You can weigh any hard shell gourd for heavy gourd. I've seen Zucca, bushel, even long gourds grown on the ground weighed in. Btw if you've never had a long gourd grow on the ground that's about what the 370 is gonna make. Chris Kent crossed a LG and bg and made his caveman gourds

Had a female show on my second 370 barlow/jacob plant. It also is a cave man club shape so im gonna yank it.

Maybe some odd shapes will be the next big thing in bushel gourds maybe a hybrid will show up some gigantic or long fruit that weighs 800 pounds a hard shell gourd is a hard shell gourd .... grows them big no matter what shape is what I say... happy growing all

I'll hang onto my 370 seeds for next year and see what the results are this Fall

both of my 370 plants are also growing fat long gourds. going to pull one of them and may end up pulling the other.

Females on my 370 are also loooong. Long and thinker than LGs.
Since this is my first time growing, I thought that was normal.
I am striking out this year with seeds not being what they were labeled. :(
But the mystery is fun too I guess.

it is what it is

Streator ,Illinois

posted some pictures of the 370 , small plant compared to the 384 , I am hoping to get it large enough to dry out and make a canoe out of it, well as long as it fits in the back of the truck anyway, it is what it is
