So Long Snake Gourd Welcome Chi-Chi Subba Rao “I have an axe to grind against persons I consider reckless in calling some vegetables and fruits with funny and insulting names.” “What vegetables?” Dan looked at Juggernaut appeared agitated and sad. “Snake, Bitter, Wax, Bottle and Coyote gourds, Lady's Finger, Egg Plant, Devil's Dung, Stinky Fruit, Horn Melon, Buddha's Hand, Dragon Fruit, Goat's Beard, and so on, these names are judgmental and descriptive to a point of insult.
