Snake green gaurd cooking help

Supposedly edible. Anyone tried cooking them?
Terrible nuisance. Taking over garden need to get something out of them. I can decide then wherever to grow them again next year AND where to grow them.

You can only eat them when they're young, like a cucumber, after that they turn bitter and tough to eat. I tried it once and never did again  ::)

I eat them as matured like courgette. Scrape the skin with a rub of salt, dice while removing any seeds that are hard and pan fry with oil and then spice it up. Yummm

As in pick them large? Courgette size.
I picked them about 3" long. Fried nothing else still a touch bitter and relatively tasteless.
I was going to add spice later.
What spices would you advise.
And again what length would you advise?
Next year I will have to find a more appropriate place to grow them...like the neighbours garden!
Do they grow happily grow along the ground?

Thanks

Had them fried with chorizo and part dehydrated tomatoes this morning. Lots of spices. Getting there flavour wise.
