Gourd Flower – Color Crazy Challenge

I really don’t know which kind of a gourd it is, it is a volunteer plant in my garden and I am letting it grow. I love these bright yellow flowers that bloom all over the vine .  However, they do not last for more than a couple of hours. By 10 am with the sun’s heat they close up and wilt.  I am waiting to see what kind of fruit/veggie it will produce.

I think it is the Benincasa hispida, the wax gourd, also called ash gourd or white gourd.

Ash gourd juice  is said to help with weightloss, reducing blood sugar levels, reducing acidity etc. There are various claims about this vegetable but there is very little evidence as is the case of anything natural.

I thought this is the perfect picture for Kim’s Color Crazy challenge 2020.
