Sowing Season: Throughout the year. Best grown in monsoon.

Sowing method: Seeds are sown directly in raised beds or containers.

Growing medium: 2 part garden Soil & 1 part any Organic Manure or 1 part garden soil, 1 part Coco Peat & 1 part Vermicompost.

Steps for seed sowing (Seed starting) in a container:

  • Take a container of your choice with drainage holes at the bottom.
  • Fill the container with proper potting layers & selected growing medium.
  • Sow 2 seeds at the centre of a pot.

  • Spacing:
  • On raised beds, sow two seeds per spot in a spacing of 3 x 3 ft.
  • Push the seeds a little in soil medium with your fingers & completely cover them with surrounding soil.
  • Water the sown seed bed immediately by a light shower with a watering can.

  • Growth stages of Ash Gourd Plant:

    Sprouting Stage: Seeds will germinate within first 6-8 days or so & tiny sprouts will be visible.

    Cotyledons: The first two leaves will emerge in the second week of germination. These are false leaves called as cotyledons.

    First leaves: First leaves will emerge above cotyledons at the end of the second week.

    Seedling stage: Second week onwards, seedlings will start growing into a small plant.

    Thinning: After the second week, keep only single seedling at one spot, Cut off the weak, small & lagging seedlings with a pair of scissors.

    How to take care for Ash Gourd Plant:

    Sunlight: Ash Gourd plants require full sunlight. Therefore your raised bed should be made at a bright sunny spot. Keep the Ash Gourd container under open sunlight.

    Watering technique: Water your potted Ash Gourd plant every day in summer. Water the soil near the plant. Use a watering can to make sure that the plants get water in the form of the shower & not by a single flow. You can also make provision for watering by drip irrigation system for your raised beds.

    Trellis: Ash gourd is an aggressive climber & needs plenty of space to grow. So develop a strong trellis support up to height of 5-6 ft, by using locally available material like pipes, bamboo, ropes, wires etc. for your Ash gourd plant.

    Manuring: As mentioned earlier, add good quality organic manure in the soil with 2:1 ratio before sowing seeds. Organic manure can be well rotten cow dung manure, farmyard manure, Compost or Vermicompost.

    Top Dressing: When your Ash gourd climber is more than 45 days old, Provide one tablespoon of 15:15:15 (NPK)
    Fertilizer per plant or mix handful of Vermicompost in the soil around each plant.

    Plant care: Always look for the early signs of any insect/fungal/ any other infections. Spray appropriate medicines as soon as any symptoms of such diseases are spotted. Watch out for Powdery Mildew when plants are young.

    Hand pollination of flowers: Take ‘pollens’ from male flowers on painting brush or cotton bud & dust them on ‘stigma’ of female flowers. This will increase overall production of Ash Gourd. This step is not mandatory.

    Note: Ash Gourds have separate Male & female flowers on same plant. Fruits will be formed on female flower after pollination.

    Harvesting: (90 to 100 days from sowing.) Ash gourd climber will start flowering at the end of 3rd month. You can start harvesting ripe Ash gourd fruits after 3 months of seed sowing. Harvesting season can continue for next 3 months.
