About the product:
The common name "snake gourd" also called serpent gourd refers to the narrow, twisted, elongated fruit. The whole fruit is eaten as a vegetable when young. They a have waxy green skin and are often speckled or striped with a lighter shade of green. When snake gourds are young, the seeds are fairly non-existent, the pulp around the seed mass is firm, and the flavour is mild; as it matures, the rind becomes hard, turns red, and the flavour becomes bitter and gelatinous with many seeds. Snake gourds are used for purposes like stir-frying, baking, stuffing, and boiling. They can also be added to sabzi, chopped into curries, stuffed and grilled, made into chutney and can be fried or pickled.
They will keep fresh when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
