Mao Qwa is a smaller version of Tong Qwa and is often called Little Winter Melon. Fruits are in cylinder shape of about 2-3 inches in diameter, with hairy green skin, and are picked for vegetable use when young. The white flesh is firm and mildly flavored. Plants are trained up along supports and should be well watered during hot summer.
NOTE: Hairy Gourd needs insects to carry out the pollinating process for setting fruits. If the insects or bees are not available in your area, the pollinating process can be done manually, by picking up male flowers and transferring pollens (face-to-face touching the center part of flowers) to femal flowers . This process should be carried out when flowering is active during the daytime.
