At Bears Fruit Market we were impressed by all the gourds that were on display. I thought I knew a few gourds, but it was really just a few. Butternut, acorn, spaghetti squash are relatively easy to find at the supermarket. I’ve seen and cooked with those before. But have you ever seen a turban squash? a swan squash? Don’t worry, neither had I until a couple days ago.

Some of the gourds were advertised as being “great keepers”. I’m guessing that means they last a long time in storage. I wonder how long. Any gourd experts out there? I wanted to take one of each gourd home. My husband limited me to a couple. I guess that means we’ll have to go back soon.
