The gourd seeds I planted were in a package labeled Birdhouse Gourd mix...and I did get a few different types. But I removed seeds from two birdhouse gourds that looked alike, and the seeds are different colors, and are slightly different in size and shape, too. I would appreciate it if someone can tell me if this means I have seeds for different gourds? Many thanks,

It could just be variations; I don't think any two seeds would be identical and I've had seeds that look very different from the same gourd. Plant them both and find out! That's half the fun -- IF you have the space!
