    Cool and spaceship esk! Strange! Alien Fruit

    I picked up this strange morrow/squash type thing in a vegitable and flower shop thats connected with Moo Moos a cafe along the Bath road near Cheltenham (it might be part of Cheltenham and it might infact be the Old Bath Road I’m not sure).

    Anyway it was like 30p and I was doing a Halloween party and decorating the village hall with a spooky fruit and veg feel. I had no idea what it was and started asking around. It fitted into my hand and had a sort of waxy feel to it. There was no lable on the basket it came from and I asked around – I got some very silly answers – namely ‘pig marrow’ from one of my husbands friends who then confessed he hadn’t got a clue.

    Apparently it is a gourd – the sort of thing that used to be hollowed out to make bowls and things in olden times. This would fit with the waxy feel of the skin and the fact that it didn’t go rotten until one of our kitten chewed a corner off of it:/

    But if anybody knows anything else about this or anything related please let me know!
