Gourd Vases are sized by the diameter straight across at the widest point, not by height or circumference.
Please Note: Gourds are often referred to as 5" or 6" or 7" etc., but they are will be bigger because of how we price them. For example, a gourd that passes THROUGH the 7-inch ring on our sizing board is priced and referred to as a "6-inch gourd," even though it could be as big as 6.9 inches. Click on the "How Gourds Are Priced" tab above to see how we price our gourds.
Gourds are sized by their diameter, which is the widest point of the gourd straight across.
Most of the "Pre-Boxed Clean Gourds" are sorted by the following sizes:

*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.
