Buildings, Bread and Weird Fruit

Published in: Daily Beauty

The title pretty much says it all (I took these while I was out sightseeing on my last day in Milan).

By the way, you officially ROCK if you can name the weird fruit!

    It’s a Bule gourd! It’s a type of warted or warty gourd. It’s in it immature green state. Mature, it turns brown and does a very good imitation of a giant hairball. :-) Here’s it is: http://www.seedsavers.org/Details.aspx?itemNo=936

    I can tell it’s a gourd because it looks thick-skinned and has a really fibrous stem. A custard apple looks more like an artichoke shape and texture wise. A horse apple has a very close texture, but it would be the same size as the pomegranate sitting next to it and would be more wrinkled than warty.

    LOL– I’m making my farmer ancestors proud today! Happy Friday, everyone!! :-D

    It’s a gourd! Here in Northern Italy we make a very yummy soup with it either with vegetable stock or milk.
