Winter melon, or ash gourd, is a mild-tasting fruit that’s often used as a vegetable in Asian cuisines—most commonly in Chinese and Indian food. It’s a popular ingredient in soups, sweets, and beverages. It thrives in warm climates, especially Asia. Once picked, the melons are easy to transport, and they store well. They are sold primarily in Asian markets where there is a higher demand. The fruit’s seasonal name likely comes from the fact that, while grown during the summer and autumn, it can be stored for up to three to four months and eaten during the winter. Additionally, immature melon has fine hairs and this fuzziness reminds some people of snow. Once it matures, it loses its hair and gets a waxy coating.

Winter melon can grow to more than a foot in length and weigh more than 40 pounds. It resembles a large watermelon with its oblong shape and dark green, waxy skin, although some are more round in shape. Unlike a watermelon, the flesh and seeds are white
