Our packaging is reusable

In case you didn’t already know, our packaging is reusable. The calabash (scientific name: lagenaria siceraria), also known as the pilgrim’s gourd, is our packaging. An interesting fact that has to do with why it is known as pilgrim’s gourd is that for centuries, pilgrims used this gourd as a container to store water or wine. Hence it may also be referred to as  “water gourd” or “wine gourd.”

Did you know that even though it is an edible vegetable, when you let it dry the outer part hardens and can be reused in many ways?
