Dinosaur Gourds are grown as a curiosity and for aesthetic appeal they are used for decoration and crafts, they are not edible. Their appearance is quite bizarre, they have a rough scaled thick green skin which resembles what we would expect of a dinosaur. They also have a long curved neck much like a brontosaurus or similar sauropod.
Although the vines are not exceptionally large, the gourds at times are. Trellising or a similar support is advisable
