All cultivars of the Luffah Gourd will produce the sponges. As far as where to get seeds- We don't recommend specific places to purchase. I would try local nurseries, or online such as Amazon, Etsy, and Ebay. They have vendors that will have what you are looking for.

Here is an article that will give you information on the care of these plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/gourd/luffa-gourd-planting.htm
