Ribbed Gourd is affected by 2 different diseases.
1. When it is young (less than 10 cms), the lower portion colour is becoming different from the upper portion (which is normal). The vegetable does not grow well beyond this.
2. The vegetable becomes bulged in the middle and the upper and lower portions are normal.

Let me know if anybody has come across these problems and please let me know the solutions.

Proper culture and sanitation help keep ridge gourds healthy and productive. Rotate crops, allowing a minimum of one year between cucurbit plantings. If disease has been present, make that three years. Sterilize your garden tools with household disinfectant, and keep the garden weed-free. Allow good air circulation and avoid overhead watering. Till or destroy all vines and foliage at season's end. Wear gloves, protective clothing and safety eyewear when you mix and spray. If your product's label does not specifically list gourds, do a test spray on a small part of the plant. Wait 24 hours before spraying further.
