What is Luffa?
Luffa sponges come from a plant, not the sea as often imagined! Luffa cylindrica is a species of plant in the gourd family. They are related to Melons, Pumpkins, Cucumbers, Zucchini, Squash, etc. Luffa is native to South and Southeast Asia. It thrives in moist, hot environments. Perfect for the Lowcountry! They are also naturally pest and disease resistant. In addition to being used as a sponge, the young fruits are eaten in a similar fashion to zucchini or summer squash. Luffa is a versatile and resilient plant that can be easily grown.
