In Nigeria we have many local names for it such as asisa, kaanka-oyibo, ihion-oyibo, baska etc. This climber plant is seen on fence tops in construction sites.

I am a sponge extraordinaire, I am created for this purpose to sanitise your environment and provide other health benefits only if you are willing to draw a little nearer”.Loofah matured fruits yield that fibrous sponge-like fibers good for skin scrub and useful also as scrubbing pads for pots and other kitchen utensil.
