Isn't it? When I first saw it, I thought the tree was sick, my parents have never laughed so hard (remember, I grew up in the States, they didn't - so they know this tree, I had never seen it until the late '90s!). I would have thought the gourds would have grown on small branches, like fruit, but no, as you can see they grow straight on the trunk and big branches....it still makes me think of chicken pox! =)
