This vining gourd has a delicious, nutty flavor when harvested young and can be used in both warm curries and cool yogurt dishes (like Raita). It does best when given a strong support or trellis to climb, and to ensure fruiting you can hand-pollinate the flowers with a paintbrush or cotton wand. This variety produces shorter fruits that are 8"to 10" long, but has early maturity and great productivity.
