It is my understanding that this plant doesn't generally propagate from seed and is usually started by a vine cutting or tuber. We are trying to find a cutting/tuber of both the male and female plant.
This plant is very popular with the Indian community here in the SF Bay Area. When it shows up in the market it sells out quickly. We'd like to try to grow it locally.
Please let me know if you have the plant or know a source for the plant in the US.
Maybe the person running the market can tell you who brought the pointed gourd in and you could talk that person into selling you ( and perhaps others) a start of the plant. If it sells that quickly, you can't be the only one interested.
