Identify this vegetable, please.

Asked March 30, 2016, 2:23 PM EDT

I know this is a vegetable grown by a Vietnamese family but I don't know the name or how to cook/eat it due to the language barrier. 4-6" long in pic. Thanks

This looks like a white bitter melon to me. The botanical name is Momordica charantia. Here is a link to the National Bitter Melon Council. It has all kinds of information, including recipes, on bitter melon. http://bittermelon.org/
