Ash and waX are not edible but as thin layer on a gourd, people eat it. That is Ash or wax Gourd but Juggernaut renamed Ash Gourd as Ko-Mo to serve in his restaraunt as Ko-Mo curry.

Ash and Wax 

Subba Rao 

Ash and wax are not associated with something edible but when 

it is only a thin coating on a large gourd, people eat it.  Call it 

Ash, Wax or White gourd, it is the same thing, a large oval shaped 

gourd grows on a vine. Ash or waxes were not appetizing words but the 

flesh inside the fruit is soft, spongy and mildly sweet to make soft 

candy sold in daily market as “Petha.”  Like any Indian dishes, it can 

be curried or pickled or boiled to make a soup or blended to make a 

refreshing drink.  Renaming funny named vegetables was self imposed 

task Juggernaut takes very seriously.  On ad hoc basis, Ash or Wax 

gourd was renamed as “Ko-Mo,” this name is more in harmony with its 

natural habitat than descriptive Ash or Wax. At a Vegetarian 

restaurant, on the menu list Ko-Mo curry or stir fry or soup or pickle 

sounds appetizing than Curried Ash or Wax gourd.
