Seeds I bought were called "Asian Bride". The fruit were white with lavender striped markings & got about 6" long and 2 " across. They cook up light because of the light skin & had very few seeds until they browned going to seed on the plant. I saved seeds & will plant again next year. We liked them as much as Icaban but they stay a stocky 3'x3' bush unlike Icaban that can get taller.
