Default Batwing gourd seeds

Our local library had a basket of some really cool gourds, with "wings" growing on the sides. They said they were called "batwing" gourds. I've googled them, but the pictures I found do not resemble the gourds at all. Anybody know where I could find seeds?

Thanks!

Okay, I did some more research and found out they are called Autumn Wing Gourds...so, here is one of the places you can order them. Can't wait to grow 'em next year...

I think you mean the Autumn Wing gourds, but there also is a Bat Wing gourd - seeds are in the Pinetree catalog. It's round and orange on the top half and green on the bottom half. Not sure why they would call it Bat Wing but it's in there.
