These went brown before I could use them, also the inside seemed hollow.😟. Perhaps I’ll have better luck bedtime. Thanks for your help. 👍🎄🍷harv.azadover 1 yearKerala ?victoria.darraghover 1 yearI thought this might be Okra as we bought mini versions from Sainsbury’s last week. Hari has a recipe on this too which is delicious.stripeybagover 1 yearThanks again @ latif 👍🎄latifover 1 yearYes, they are good to eat @joncrewgee and @stripeybag. One of the favorite vegetables of Mauritians. A bit similar to courgette/zucchini in taste. Have a try! You won’t be disappointed!!! Of course, taste is very subjective 😊!latifover 1 year@stripeybag and @joncrewjeelatifover 1 yearClick on link below and you’ll have a recipe with pipengaille and prawns.

You’ll find a lot of information about it on the Internet. This is how we call it in Mauritius. The English translation is sponge gourd @stripeybag. But you should click the word “pipengaille”.
