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.

Pre-Boxed gourds are offered at a substantial discount from Custom Order gourds. If you do need gourds to meet your exact specifications, you are able to place a Custom Order and get the exact gourds you need.
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!*
*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.

Looking for gourds to make a Hawaiian Ipu drum (Ipu Heke Ole)? The box of Bottle Gourds will probably not work, and the best way to get Ipu gourds is to place a Custom Order.
Ipu gourds must be hand-selected by our staff to make sure they have the right neck size (small enough for the dancer’s hand), that they sit flat, and that they are symmetrically shaped. Ipu gourds are quite specialized as compared to other “bottle” gourds, and they are priced as a “Custom Order” gourd. For more information on how to place a custom order, Click Here!

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:

Medium Size: Approx. 7"-8.9" in 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.
