Moa Gua Squash  
An Asian summer squash that has a long tapered shape with a light green outer skin covering a white to cream colored speckled flesh. When young, the squash has a mild flavor, but as it matures the taste becomes increasingly bitter. It is a good squash for sautéing, stir frying, or as an ingredient to soups and stews. It can be kept refrigerated for approximately 1 week. This squash is also known as Mao Gua, Moqua, Hairy Melon, Fuzzy Gourd, Hairy Cucumber, Ho Bak, and Bi Dao, to name a few.
