6 months / 180 days
Bottle Gourd (lau) hard-shelled fruits of the family Cucurbitaceae. Plants of these species are trailing annual herbs. In rural Bangladesh, gourd is largely grown in homestead gardens on bamboo-framed platforms or on thatched roofs.
Bottle Gourd (lau) is generally a winter crop, Lageneria vulgaris, possibly tropical or subtropical in origin, rich in carotene, calcium and vitamin C. In Bangladesh it is cultivated in about 10,000 ha, producing about 62,000 m tons; grown by direct sowing or transplanting 15 to 20 days old seedlings; crops are ready for harvest within 55-60 days; yield ranges from 35-40 m tons/ha. Some varieties of bottle gourd are BARI Lau-1, Khetlau and Hazari. Bottle gourd is primarily used in making curry with different fishes. The tender bottle gourd is used to prepare sweet dishes with sugar and milk. It has always been regarded as one of the healthiest vegetables. It is high in water and is a rich source of vitamin C, K and calcium. Furthermore, it helps in maintaining a healthy heart and brings down bad cholesterol levels. It is also rich in fiber and is believed to help in healthy digestion. The juice of the bottle gourd is rich in vitamin C and zinc contents, and it helps in regulating blood sugar levels.
Jessore is one of the most bottle gourd producing districts in Bangladesh. Other four important bottle gourd producing districts in Bangladesh are Rangpur, Bogra, Bhola, Golpalganj.
