What is loofah, the natural and vegetable sponge
Luffa is a vegetable sponge obtained by drying the fruit of Luffa cylindrica , a plant belonging to the Cucurbitaceae.
The loofah plant produces a fruit similar to a large courgette whose pulp, once ripe, appears solid, elastic and spongy.
Although the luffa courgette is edible, its food consumption is not widespread due to its bitter taste and particularly fibrous consistency.
The pulp of the loofah comes therefore dried to obtain sponges which can be used in domestic cleaning, for washing dishes or washable surfaces in the house, and especially for personal hygiene, as a body sponge in the shower.
