Gourd Hard Shelled, Spinning
Remember spinning tops? These petite "dancing" or "spinning gourds" were used as toys in the 1800s. Golf ball-sized gourds with elongated necks are beautiful painted and spun as a top, used as a rattle, or made into ornaments or jewelry. They're a great way to get kids involved in gardening, too! Long vines (up to 35'); very productive plants.
