opo squash 4x8

My sister went to see Nick Cave in San Francisco a few days ago and all I got was this strange vegetable! She picked it up in Little Saigon. She liked the colors and thought it would make a nice painting.

Well, it is a very nice painting, with the juxtaposition of those complimentary colors, and all. It would look really good next to its chromatic opposite... an eggplant.

I was a bit chagrined to find out Mr. Opo (a.k.a. calabash, Italian edible gourd, long fruited gourd, long melon, long squash, peh poh, woo lo kua, hu lu gua, New Guinea bean, Tasmania bean, snake gourd, suzza melon, zuzza, yugao, po gua, kwa kwa or hu gua, upo, cucuzza, bau, dudhi or lauki) is a member of my least-favorite veggie family.

Just count your lucky stars I couldn't afford the durian...

Just be glad that the opo squash can't paint you!
