Part of the cucumber family, Loofah or Luffa is a vine like plant that grows large cucumber like fruits that can be eaten when young or harvested when fully ripened and dried out. Once dry, the skin rots off to reveal the sponge inside. This can be used to scrub dishes or as a body loofah.
Grow in your green house or a warm conservatory, though it does grow quite long.
The fruits can reach 40cm long.
These would make a wonderful Mothersday gift accompanied with our body loofah available in Bodycare.
