So am I Nige. :) Even before the programme I had a very strong disgust reaction. I'm not usually squeamish but this pushes all the buttons. Horrid.

You'll be pleased to hear that they're not edible. Probably not surprised though. Pox fritter anyone?

Talking of Louise Bourgeoise I'm off to Tate Modern on Saturday : )
Pustule. Now there's a horrid word - did you eat the squashes?
EDIT - so much fro my close reading skills. So they weren't edible and they're not pretty. Hmm

As you've rightly identified - no I didn't! I know, it seems ever such a waste to sell something as just an ugly ornament - but then I guess I buy flowers which are pretty ornaments.

I suspect these weren't very popular as they were bought for 10p, reduced from £3.

Tend to agree as to their pointlessness - can't see why anyone would deliberately grow an inedible cucubrit. The same care could have brought forth courgettes, all sorts of tasty squashes, pumpkins, or with more faffing, cucumbers. This is defiantly inedible.

we think they're decorative and people buy them and put them in bowls as centrepieces, or around the house.

I love your take on them. kultural differences.

Swamprose, that's exactly what they're sold for here. It's just the knobbly bits that get me..

A celebration of wartiness - the ideal housewarming present for Oliver Cromwell.
