This unusual gourd is harvested, cooked and eaten while the fruit is still immature. A member of the pumpkin family, the snake gourd grows quickly once its hard-shelled seeds germinate.


Cracking the Seeds

The outer shells of the snake gourd’s seeds are unusually hard, making them difficult to germinate. Even under ideal conditions, the seeds may require a month to germinate, and up to 40 percent of the seeds fail to sprout. To increase the germination rate, carefully crack the hard shell with pliers, much like you’d crack open an almond shell — place the pliers’ jaws on the ridged seam that joins the seed’s two halves and press gently until it cracks open. Do this carefully, because if you crush the shell and damage the endosperm inside, the seeds won’t sprout.


Soaking the Seeds

After breaking the seam that holds the shell together, soaking the seeds for two to 12 hours helps activate the germination process. Simply place the cracked seeds into a bowl of warm water and place it on top of the refrigerator or in another warm location. After soaking the seeds, plant them in a moist seed-starting mix in large flowerpots or peat pots. Cover the pots with plastic wrap to hold the moisture in. When the sprouts appear, usually within 10 days, remove the plastic wrap.


Three main things to remember before planting snake gourd in your garden:

  • This is a tropical plant and will need plenty of water, warmth, and light.
  • Since it is a vining plant, you will need to provide it with a trellis.
  • Pollination is needed to produce fruit, and it’s best to do it manually.
