Aquaponics – Ridge gourd (Peechinga) update

Ridge gourd is doing well in constant flood aquaponic system. Like I posted earlier, this verity doesn’t have the groves or ridges around it, making it easier to cook.

We have only one ridge gourd plant. It has grown fast and the leaves look healthy. There are a few more ridge gourds that are shaping up. I am tracking how much it would produce.

Between, we cooked it once (Peechinga thoran). I have to say that ridge gourd wasn’t my favourite vegetable until I tasted this one :-).

Good day of harvest, considering the size of the system and the setback we had lately
