Please Note:The photos are meant as a general representation of the shapes of gourds you can expect to receive. Because gourds are a natural product, they are not guaranteed to sit flat and may have a round bottom (this is especially common in Tall-Body gourds).

If you are looking for the round-body Gourd Box, that has been discontinued and our Pear and Kettle Gourd Box has replaced it. This box will include a mix of gourds with round bodies as well as pear-shaped gourds.

The "Bargain Gourds" are a great box to get at a fabulously discounted price! The average savings are 30% Off the regular gourd prices!

These gourds couldn't qualify as our regular, "high quality" gourds, so the price has been greatly reduced!

They may have one or more flaws, such as minor cracks, scarring, or other shell blemishes. These blemishes can be easily carved out or masked with GourdMaster™ Gourd Glue.

"Absolutely love the [Bargain Quality] round body gourds that I recently purchased. They arrived clean with very little imperfections. I can't get such thick shells here in Ohio. Love Welburn gourds!!!" - Ronda Garman

Finally! A gourd box option with a mix of pear-style gourds! This new “Pear and Kettle” gourd box has both taller pear shaped gourds and shorter ‘kettle shaped’ gourds (named for the classic squatty stove-top water kettles many people used to have).

The base, or main body, of these beautiful gourds is taller than most canteen gourds and wider than a Tall-Body Gourd, great for when you want round gourds with some height. Get inspired by some Pear and Kettle gourd art below!

Gourd sizing chart

Shown above, Gourd Sizing Board

Small: Approx. 5-6.9" Diameter*
Medium: Approx. 7-8.9" Diameter*
Large: Approx. 9-10.9" Diameter*
Mixed Sizes: Approx. 5-10.9" Diameter*

*Please note: Gourds will be bigger than the size shown on the sizing board because there is a range from one size hole to the next. For example, a gourd that sits on the 9-inch ring and passes through the 10-inch ring on our sizing board is priced as a 9-inch gourd, even though it could be as big as 9.9 inches. Watch our Gourds 101 video to see how we price our gourds. Gourds are sized by their diameter, which is the widest point of the gourd straight across.

Because gourds are a natural product, these may have a slightly asymmetrical shape, or shell blemishes in an inconspicuous area, but they are still fabulous gourds! As always, Pre-Boxed gourds have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied, simply return the entire box for a full refund within 30 days!*

*For Pre-Boxed gourds, refunds are given on the entire box, not individual gourds. Sorry, we cannot refund individual gourds from a Pre-boxed group because the price reduction offered on these boxes (as compared to Custom Order gourds) is based on the group of gourds as a whole.
