Ash Gourd (Petha)

Also known as

ash gourd
Latin : Benincasa hispida

English : Ash Gourd, White Gourdmelon

Sanskrit : Kusmandah

Hindi : Petha, Raksa

Marathi : Kahala

Tamil : Pusanikkai

Telugu : Budidagummadi

Malayalam : Kumpalam

Kannada : Budikumbala

How it looks—It is a large climbing gourd with large leaves, yellow flowers and broad cylindrical fruits.

What we use—Fruits, seeds

What it does—It is sweet, cooling, laxative, diuretic aphrodisiac and styptic

How we use it

In bleeding—Whether internal or external, the intake of the juice of the ash pumpkin is highly helpful in arresting the bleeding and healing tissues.

In excessive cholesterol—It has been shown that regular intake of the juice of the ash pumpkin reduces cholesterol and dilates blood vessels.

In sleeplessness—The intake of the juice gives a feeling of satiation and induces sound sleep, so it can be used in disturbed or lack of sleep with impressive results.

In burning urination—In most urinary disorders regularly drinking the ash pumpkin juice increases the production of urine and even flushes out small urinary stones.

In constipation—Pieces of the fruit fried in ghee and the juice itself are laxative in nature.

In worms—About 20gms of the seeds are powdered and taken with honey on an empty stomach, followed by lots of the juice at night. The seeds being anthelmintic, this schedule usually frees the body from most intestinal worms.

In anaemia—The fruit and leaves are dried and powdered. A tsp of this powder is taken every day with a glass of buttermilk.

As a brain tonic—The ash pumpkin is endowed with qualities such as nervine tonic and stimulant. A confectionery can be prepared with sugar candy, ghee, honey and the fruit pieces, which can be used in doses of a tsp every day.
