Benincasa hispida (wax gourd vegetable - courge)

Benincasa hispida - wax gourd vegetable - courge - Commonly called wax gourd or fuzzy gourd, is native to Southeast Asia. It is an annual creeping vine with branched tendrils that will climb structures (with some support), cover fences or sprawl along the ground. Although it has some ornamental value, it is primarily grown as a food plant. Coarse, prominently-furrowed, thick, hairy stems are clad with large, roughly-textured. Golden yellow flowers are followed by oblong to nearly spherical melon-like fruits which vary in appearance and uses depending on growth stage. Young fruits are often commonly called fuzzy gourd. White flesh is crisp and juicy. Winter melons typically range in size from 5-20 pounds in rounded shapes (to 12" diameter) or in cylindrical shapes (to 15" long), but in ideal conditions may grow much larger (to 25-50 pounds and to 4-6' long). Family : cucurbitaceae
