Q.Snake Gourd Flower (Trichosanthes cucumerina)

Zone New York City | alexionescu05 added on May 20, 2018 | Answered


My name is Alexandra Ionescu and I am a Biomimicry student.

Thank you so much for your blog, it is indeed very helpful and full of wonderful resources!

I came across the article of the snake gourd flower.

I was wondering if you might know about some people in US (or especially New York City) that grow it.

It is for a research project and desperately trying to find one as it is very hard to come across one.

Thank you very much again!

My best wishes,

Unfortunately, I would not know where to find one. You can check with your local extension service, as they may be of some assistance. This link will help you to find the closest one to you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/extension-search
