Very long, thin, cucumber shaped gourds grown in Guangdong province, with dark skin concealing creamy colored flesh that’s sweeter, crisper and more tender than other varieties of luffa gourd. Often paired with shredded pork and eggs in Cantonese cuisine, handle just as you would squash, zucchini or eggplant. Indeed, with a similar texture to zucchini, luffa gourds readily absorb the flavors of other ingredients and spices.
