Winter melon - 10 seeds

Winter melon - Benincasa hispida. A hardy vine producing many gourds. Although called winter melon (just one of its names) it is grown in spring/summer. The gourds can be eaten when young like a courgette or left to grow to full size. They store extremely well. Maybe that's why they're called a winter melon - they can be stored and eaten in winter.
Common in Asian cuisine it is often used in a soup - the firm flesh holds up well when cooked.
