Climate and Soil

  • Hot and humid climate is best for its development. It is a warm season crop. During winter, it becomes dormant and sprouts again in summer. Rainfall is considered very well for pointed gourd but coastal climate is not suitable.
  • Both the sandy loam and loamy soils are best for growth and development of this crop. The soil should be well drained and rich in organic matter. It is also grown in the riverbeds.
