Regular price₹80.00Sale price₹50.00
The Sponge gourd is a cylindrical fruit that grows on a climbing, herbaceous vine. It has a smooth, green skin when young, and may feature ridges or ridge lines that run across the skin of the fruit.
Young Sponge gourds have a tender skin that tends to break easily. To avoid damage, the fruit is cut from the vine, rather than pulled. The dried fibers of mature Sponge gourd are used to make sponges. These are used to make loofahs to exfoliate the skin; or to make scrubbing sponges for kitchens and bathrooms.
