This pretty bad boy been eating my plants #caterpillar
He's attractive for a caterpillar but I'm sure you don't want him eating your plants. I know calabash is a gourd - is it edible?
I’m pretty sure @treefrog44 can tell us about this colorful, interesting looking guy😊💕
He is a work of art!
Looks like a mistletoe moth caterpillar... not finding a lot of info on this guy.... native to Australia @terrimclaughlin
How big is it? Are there any gum trees nearby with mistletoe growing on them? http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/16740
@brightcolours we don’t have any gum trees near by. I was thinking the same too because I’ve seen them on gum trees before.
@lovestogarden he’s beautiful but nasty 😁
@gjones calabash is edible....you can cook it the way you would cook zucchini.
Spray painted dried gourds
@gjones @sue1953 that's what I did with dried gourd
They look nice- make great decorations!
Lovely how long do they last?
@sue1953 I think it will last for many years. Matured dried gourd is very hard. You need a saw to cut it open

You've done a great job!
Green #calabash on vine aka bottle gourd.
What does that taste like? Is it a veg or fruit? Forgive my ignorance. 😀
We grew these plus cannonball gourds last summer. They're still curing and drying. What do you plan to do with yours? We're making some into birdhouses and some into decorations to hang in the trees etc.
Wowzers!!! How long is this gourd?
Lol @sue1953 not a lot of people know about gourd. It's a veg, I would say it's very similar to winter squash. You can do a lot with gourd, stir fried, soup and omelette. It's very popular in Asia.
@gjones I'm going to eat some and keep some to dry it. Last year I sprayed paint some for decoration. I will post picture to show you.
Thank you For your feedback.
