Last year, my sister grew Vietnamese Opo squash Trái bầu, weighted 20 lb in North Seattle. Even in Vietnam, I never saw a giant opo before.
This squash prefers hot weather and needs about 3 months to get full size. We surprised that Opo squash grew well , and gave 20 lb giant “kid.” Opo shrimp soup is one of the best comfort food, and it is healthy and delicious soup. According to Chinese medicine, Opo soup would make your body “cool” in hot summer. Below is more “Happy harvesting Opo” pictures.
