The Cutest Veggies

Filed Under: my fridge. After being told by my mom that these were called "fu shou gua", Buddha fist melons (?), I immediately thought that they could potentially be turned into characters, if faces were drawn on them. After little prompting from my friend Shiying, I decided, "Why the hell not? And I'll even put them in the fridge so they can greet my parents when they open it." I've named the two melons grandpa Joe and grandma Barb. Grandpa Joe is, of course, the one that has fangs.

Gpa Joe and Gma Barb!

Does anyone know what they're actually called in English?

Aww, look, they're cuddling!
