The calabash is right! As soon as I read the name, I remembered that is what the guide told us. Thank you for your help!

I think Nuwan's got it. I forgot about the large gourds.

Not 100% sure on the suggestion, but it's the only fruit I know that is that color and gets that big.

I'm pretty sure it wasn't an apple, but I'll look into it. Thanks.

Is it an apple or am I just being simplistic in my analysis?
