  • I found some Tambuli edible gourd today at lunch. Going to cook that with some yellow squash and the Zucchino Rampicante so I can compare in the same meal.

    Also baked a Georgia Candy Roaster, and parboiled a pink banana at lunch. Will do the two Aussie butter squash tonight and puree for a pie.

    I've got to cook them up or Debbi will start beating me with them.

    Ooooh, just tasted the Georgia Candy Roaster. I see why it got its' name. Nothing extra, just the squash and even Deb is snacking on it. It won't make the freezer bag.

    The banana is a good tasting squash but needs something extra to make it special.

  • Of course, one was baked on a cookie sheet and the other boiled, so it could be in the preparation as well.

  • Gave away the large two Tabula so I still do not know what they are like but saved a smaller one and the plant is flowering so I expect more.

    It seems to grow well in the summer heat and humidity. Has anyone else tried it around here?
