Gourds In The Grid

crossword-clue-gourds While doing the FT crossword today, I came across this clue:
FT 12981: A lot of fruit satisfied epicure (7) GOUR{-d} MET

It struck me then that the GOURD figures often in British crosswords but hardly ever in Indian ones. I wonder why; gourds are eaten here so much!

Two more recent "gourd" clues from the Times:
Times 24083: Chap got stuck into bottle for one - he'll swallow plenty (8) GOUR{MAN}D
Times 23855: Run out of fruit served with a kind of cheese (5) GOU{-r}D A
