BLIGO: FIRST HARVEST

Finally we get  some fruits to be harvested from  the  Bligo or  wax gourd vine (Benincasa hispida).



Six  fruits in so many  different maturity.
I have learned a  little  things  about how to cook  this  fruit.



Now, it's time to practicing those recipes.
I think we should share these fruits with  our friends.
This is small fruiting variety.



Common Bligo is usually much bigger than ours.
I think small size is much  better for us, a small family.



First recipe ... Fresh drink... Wax gourd in melon syrup. 



Thanks GOD...
