This Babu is a natural dried that falls from the vine. They look like mini corn stalks but are very soft to the touch. The stalks are about 1/2"-3/4" wide and vary in length from 2"-4". You get one 8 oz. bag of this Primitive GREEN BABU which is a considerable amount. These pods look great in a pan around a candle, in an old wooden dough bowl, trencher or antique jar. I have used these in a huge hurricane on a table with a candle burried in them. It looks fantastic. You can also scent these pods with any oil to make your own potpourri.
