[automatically translated] The gourd (calabash (Molina) Standl.) Is a cucurbit known for more than 15,000 years for the edibility of immature fruits and sprouts but also for its healing properties and for different uses which it may be the mature fruit. Although the cultivation of Lagenaria is widespread in Asia, Europe, and the Western countries in general, its use is limited to a few restricted areas in which won the approval of consumers. Therefore, this species has considerable commercial potential for the dissemination of new markets. To this end it is desired to evaluate the possibility of transforming the fruits of lagenaria in fresh-cut product.
