Having no idea what these were, Ligeia opened one up and this is what the inside looked like:
Inside were filled with these little pods:
The entire bundle only produced this much edible stuff (still to be determined):
Ligeia bravely tried some raw and it was the worst thing ever! Seriously, forget water-boarding, just give someone some of this and they will tell you anything you want to know. It actually burns. So does anyone know what this is? Is this how split peas grow? I’ve only seen them in a soup or in a package of “dried split peas”. If there are any agriculturally wise people out there, please leave a comment. (If you don’t want to sign up for a google account, just post the comment anonymously.)
I wonder what strange new thing tomorrow will bring!

you should ask some of the locals how to eat them… I think u have to roast them… WUV WUV
they sure aren't peas. split peas you find in soup are just garden green peas left to mature till dry. they split rather easily either while cooking or before.
these are a new one on me, and i've seen a lot.

Hello everyone, after some research we think that this vegetable may be a Thai snake gourd.
Check out the pictures and labels on this website to compare:
Wow – strange!
So are you going to roast them?
