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—some varieties may even be rather sweet to the taste.
