A Calabash, Bottle gourd, or White-flowered gourd, Lagenaria siceraria, also known by many other names, including Long melon, New Guinea bean and Tasmania bean.It is also locally known in many places as Bottle squash, White gourd, Trumpet gourd, Lauki, Doodhi, Ghia and Calabash gourd.
It is cultivated in the humid weather of Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, China, tropical Africa and South America. Its intensely branched stems bear musky, deep green, broad leaves just similar as that in pumpkins, and white, monoecious flowers in the summer. After about 75 days from the plantation, young, tender, edible fruits evolve that will be ready for harvesting.
Bottle gourds come in wide range of shapes and sizes. The fruit features oval, pear-shaped or elongated and smooth skin that is light green. In the case of round or pear shaped calabash, their surface is marked by inconspicuous ridges that run lengthwise. Internally, its flesh is white, spongy and embedded with soft, tiny seeds. As the fruit begins to mature, its seeds gradually grow similar to as that in honeydew melons.
