    Curiosity got the best of me. Here is a link: “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.
