Notes

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!

Trivia[edit]

  • Strangely, the vegetable is described as extremely spicy, like jalapeño peppers; however bell peppers are, in fact, very mild, and some varieties may be rather sweet to the taste.
  • Oddly, Olimar and the ship refer to the treasure as a vegetable, even though peppers are fruit.
