I recently read from an excerpt from a San Diego magazine or Newspaper that the gourds you buy come to you via the Mail and green with mold. Here’s a link to a Farm near Temecula. I haven’t been there yet. They may be a good source for gourds.

I've gotten a bunch from that place. Most farms charge less for uncleaned gourds and I'm okay with the elbow grease. I usually dunk them under water for a day or so and it usually scrubs off easily.

I’m seriously thinking about making a Gourd Banjo. I have a Barry Sholder banjo. Do you treat the inside of your gourds? You soak your gourds in water???
