    Greetings from Indonesia.

    Wow, what a nice picture. We have this kind of plant in Indonesia, the taste is bitter. We can eat the green skin leaving the seeds out. We will put some ingredients of fish, flour, spices inside the skin, and put them in the steamer. We can eat it with chilly sauce. Some people like this kind of dish. As I surf in the google, I found out that fruit is also for medicine.

    Good reading.
