The karasuuri, or Japanese Snake Gourd, bears its ripe fruit in early Autumn, signaling the end of summer. Its flowers are unique, only blossoming at night and closing in the morning.

Its name in Japanese, karasuuri, translates to “Crow Gourd,” and it is said that the plant gets its name because the fruit is a favorite treat of crows.

The capacities listed show the amount of sencha (Japanese tea leaves) that can be stored in each canister.
