Light coloured: Lauki or Bottle Gourd. AKA:Calabash or Cucuzzi.
Dark green: Serpent gourd.
I'm just beginning my Serpent Gourd/Snake Gourd (Trichosanthes cucumerina ) harvest .
Wonderful texture for soups, stews, curries and stir fries so it is worth noting that Serpent Gourd has the smallest space demands of the climbing squashes/gourds in my experience and offers a delicate white flower.
Ate both tonight Filipino style in 'Ginisang Upo with Pork'.Very simple dish with great taste and texture.
