The Corsican gourd is often referred to as the 'cheese wheel' of gourds.

The fruit, once mature, can be cut by the stem once the vine dies, then allowed to dry for several months. Once you are able to hear the seeds rattling around on the inside and the gourd is no longer cold to the touch, it can be scrubbed clean and painted, carved, whatever suits your fancy.

Easy to grow, it asks full sun and well drained, fertile soil. A place to climb is appreciated, as these plants send out long vines which crave climbing.
