Here's a picture of how the hairy gourd looks like:


  1. Thanks for the photo! It doesn't look too hairy - is it like a kiwi? What does it taste like?

    1. Yes, it is like the kiwi fruit's skin. :) It does not have a very strong taste. But the texture is very nice. Soft and tender. And it gives a unique taste to the dish. A mild tasting gourd. :)
