    Curiosity got the best of me. Here is a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cucurbita_foetidissima “The fresh young gourd can be eaten like squash. When the fruit is mature, it is not edible anymore due to bitter compounds.” It must have been too mature when I “tested” it as a kid because it was very bitter and unpalatable. Isn’t the internet great!

    Your key words are “roadside” and “Texas”. For a quick un-researched answer about 50 years ago I learned a name for them as “Buffalo Gourds”. Good luck.
