My kids planted a seed pack they got at school. It was a variety pack
of vegetables and flowers. I've got one monster vine taking over the
whole garden. It seems to have several medium-sized gourds on it and
also has an interesting yellow bloom. Any help identifying this monster
would be appreciated. As well, are the gourds edible? Pictures are here:
Thanks for any help.
I would say it is just an ordinary marrow,
Cut one and use as with any other marrow, if it is a spaghetti marrow then
you will find that in the centre you don't have the usual pulp with seeds
in. You can still cook it young.
The leaves and the flowers say "pumpkin" to me, especially the flowers. Yes, I
know the fruit look like gourds now, but some varieties of pumpkin (those grown
for eating not Jack o'Lanterns) come in pretty wierd forms.
No matter what, I would wait and see what color the fruit turns when it ceases
to be green to know for sure.
In matters of truth and justice,
there is no difference between large and small problems,
for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.
