identify...if I can manage to get the pictures on

Payson, AZ(Zone 7a)

This is the veg? that I need help in identifying. I thought it was a cuke at first but it is not. It is very pithy and bitter. Maybe some type of gourd. Even the young ones are the same. Any help will be appreciated. I ask them where they got the seeds. Said they bought them.

Hmmm perhaps an India Short Snake Gourd ( Trichosanthes anguina ) ???

Check this page: http://www.seedman.com/Gourds.htm

and Search for "RGS155"

Tucson, AZ(Zone 9a)

It's a loofah. Let the rest dry out completely on the vine, then peel off the skin and shake out the seeds.

I'm a little jealous- I havent been able to grow them in years.
