Like many of the pumpkin and squash family, it starts in a fairly slow way, sitting quietly and non-descript in amongst the other plants. Then one morning, ZOOOM, you come out to see the garden, and this triffid has taken over your whole backyard!
|Kamokamo is the plant that you can see everywhere here, running over gardens, along fences, and around the clothesline. (chooks placed in picture to give correct scale!).|
|Even now in April, we still have new kamokamo bursting forth.|
|Our most recent kamokamo, which I dubbed "Wilson" weighed 4.5 kilograms.|
Do any of you grow kamokamo? What's your favourite way to eat it?
