Red Gourd

In the Chinese epic, Journey to the West, the jade vase is one of five treasures belonging to Senior King Gold Horn. When he holds the vase upside down and say someone's name, if they reply the vase sucks them inside of it. The pressure inside is strong enough to liquify someone within three hours.

Sun Wukong disguises himself as an immortal Taoist and tricks the demons into trading the Red Gourd and the jade vase for a gourd that can hold the entire sky. In reality Sun Wukong's gourd is a fake, but he manages to procure the two treasures before the demons find out, and eventually traps Junior King Silver Horn in the gourd where he is liquefied.

The five treasures belong to the Supreme Lord Lao Zi, who comes down from Heaven to reclaim them after the demons are defeated. It turns out that they were apprentices under Lao Zi who stole the treasures and came down to the mortal world to hide.

The other four treasures are:
Seven-Star Sword
Red Gourd
Plantain Fan
Dazzling Golden Cord

Good One David I did forget about Tennessee Orange which is ever soooo paolupr here in our great state. Although most probably think of football with Tennessee Orange, I think of your parents and your dads longing to be back in Tennessee As far as the Orange Root Vegetable to those of you who don't know that was a code name we used when our kids were smaller. For some reason, from birth, they each had a dislike for potatoes. My mom to this day swears that it's because they have Italian in their blood and their love for pasta must be genuine My kids would and will still eat just about anything, but for some reason never cared for potatoes. So, upon yet another try at introducing the sweet potato this time I tried it roasted in a medley of other root vegetables. When asked the identification of the sweet potato we ever so cleverly left out the word potato and hence it was the orange root vegetable and they loved it. To this day, they choose sweet potatoes over white potatoes
