average time for a snake gourd to ripen
What is the average time for a snake gourd to ripen? My snake gourd plant has just fruited. I want to know in how many days should I harvest?

Harvest snake gourds when young (before the skin becomes thick), around 40-50 days from planting. The long varietals may then be ready when only 16-18 inches, while the shorter cultivars will be around 6-8 inches in length.
