Last year I grew Birdhouse Gourds. The seeds I planted all looked alike...the typical gourd/pumpkin seed shape. This year, I've taken seeds from two dried gourds; one looks like the typical seed, and one is shaped like a flat peg with a slight notch at the large end. This has me bamboozled! How am I getting different seeds out of gourds that look alike on the outside? Has anyone ever seen a gourd seed shaped like I've described? I hope someone can help me! I'm starting to feel like a gourd head!! Here's a pic of the "different" one described above.
Hmm, very interesting reply, Sy!! All the ones you posted in the pic look a lot like mine. Do you think it's even remotely possible that I got one of these other gourd seeds from a Birdhouse gourd? The one these came out of was a bottle gourd. Forgot to mention that my BH gourd seeds were mixed, which does not include Snake or Swan. Thank you very much for your reply!
