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?

    Ah well, that explains it! It looked like it had some terrible disease.

      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!

    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
