Olimar's journal

According to the ship's analysis, this gourd contains extremely bitter seeds. However, this analysis was done by a machine, so I'm not completely convinced. Normally I wouldn't mind trying it myself, but I haven't been feeling well since I ate that toxic berry...

Sales pitch

A vegetable with spiciness beyond description. None want to eat it, so it must be healthy! Nutrition-conscious people of today! Numb your palate and eat!

  • Strangely, the vegetable is described as extremely spicy like jalapeño peppers, though bell peppers tend to be very mild. This mistake is not present in the Japanese version, where it is instead correctly described as bitter.
