Gourds in Cyprus are called ‘kologi’, ‘nerokologo’ or ‘vlaskoudia’. When they grow up they are lying on the ground and their stems curve round back towards the base. In other cases gourds are hanging from climbers so that their stems keep straight. There are several of shapes and sizes as from 7cm up to 100cm. In the old times the small gourds were used by huntsmen to keep in gunpowder while the bigger ones were used as bottles for keeping wine or the farmers used to take water with them in the gourds.
