Mystery solved!

I posted about the extremely ugly pumpkin that appeared in my veggie patch forgetting that I had planted seed for a Japanese pumpkin. While going through my box of seeds I found this.

The penny dropped and I remembered I must have planted some of this seed. A quick google search led me to this site about Japanese food culture which quite clearly explains my monster to a tee. I’m glad I discovered this and will now have to check out how it tastes. Sounds interesting.

What discoveries have you made with interesting or strange food growing?

    1. Did make me feel a little creeped out when I looked at it! Can’t wait to see what the inside is like but that will wait till we get a wet, rainy day. Could be three years at this rate!

  1. There you go. Last time we had a mystery it turned out to be “man Shingles” (as distinct from man flu). I’d much prefer a crazy pumpkin! X
