Angled loofah

We were growing the smooth loofah (aka Egyptian loofah) for sometime now…
My missus initially bought a seedling and we have been using the seeds for several seasons now…
It taste a bit like eggplant…
Then, I bought some angled loofah seeds from Bangkok…
And woah, we are blessed with a constant supply of loofahs…
Except for the people of Okinawa, the Japanese people apparently do not eat them…
However, I gave them to several of my neighbors to try…
I think the angled ones taste a little sweeter than the egyptian ones…
They can measure up to 50 centimeters, and weigh up to 200 grams…
I love them in soups or stir fry…
Tonight, we are going to sink our teeth into this lovely vegetable…
