Calabash is a tropical fruit that is native to the Caribbean and Central America. It has a hard exterior with an edible, sweet flesh. To get the best benefits of this fruit, it needs to be harvested when it's ripe.
Growing calabash trees requires patience, but yields delicious rewards!
Start by planting the seed in a seed tray or a seedling pot filled with potting soil. Make sure that there is at least 1 cm of soil. Place it in a sunny spot near a window, but not too close to it as this will cause the plant to wilt.
In order for Calabash to grow well, you need to water it about once a day and fertilize it with compost tea every two weeks. To know if your Calabash needs watering, press your finger against its surface and feel if there is moisture or not. Remove any weeds from around it.
