Here's an article I found in a 1971 article from The Spokesman-Review. They look like gourds to me.

Guinea beans ( Lagenaria siceraria). An edible gourd also called Italian Edible Gourd, Gourd Cucuzzi, Indian Squash, Italian squash etc.
http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/73599/ Beans is such a popular generic name, that things are called beans in just about every family of plants.
