OTHER COMMENTS:

Drought-tolerant - Suitable for Xeriscape

An interesting native perennial gourd that grows wild along roadsides and open fields throughout southwest is the coyote melon It is also called buffalo gourd or calabazilla.

Over-looked and under-appreciated by many, this litttle golden sand trinket has long been appreciated by artists and artisans of the Southwest for its potential as an art material. Whether with paint, knife, or wood-burner, Dremel, the Coyote melon gourds can be transformed into the most amazing pieces of artwork imaginable.

Cultivated by many Southwest tribes, the seed is rich in oil and protein. Dried seeds can be eaten. Very heat tolerant, the flowers and summer foliage make these attractive landscape plants.

The Coyote Mellon or Gourds were used by Indians as food, medicine, musical instruments, bowls, and soap. All parts of the gourd contain saponin, a compound used in making soap.

Root pieces were crushed to make a liquid soap. Some Indian tribes obtain oil from the seeds and used it for cooking oil. Seeds were dried, and ground up to make mush. Some parts of the gourd were used to treat pain and sickness.

The pulp of the gourd was spread on cuts and ulcers to prevent infection and help healing. Ground up seeds were also used as a first aid treatment.

Dried gounds were used as bowls, vessels and containers, and rattles for ceremonies and musical instruments.


OTHER INTERESTING INFO....

During fall when the melons are ripe and plentiful, the flat, watermelon-like seeds are often found in coyote scat. The coyote melon is well-adapted to dry, sandy soils with an immense, taproot that may extend several feet into the ground. The taproot often sends out many lateral, sprouting branches, and this vine can become an invasive weed in vegetable gardens.

Scientists are experimenting with hybrid buffalo gourds as a food crop in the vast Middle East deserts. The seeds are a vital source of protein-rich oil in the desert lands.

The vines can be propagated readily and they resprout each year, thus eliminating the need for buying more seed each year.
