Bean Gourd

Bean Gourd Lagenaria siceraria
These long gourds are edible while young
but if allowed to fully grow and left to dry
will develop a tough outer shell suitable for decorating...
...that's what Doc wants them for!

They are growing well in the heat...
... but may soon take over the Almond tree!!
