Grow mammoth 7’ long gourds and amaze your family. Super tasty fruit are tender up to 4’ long. The tenderness and great flavor made them a favorite in our kitchen. Fun for craft projects and entering garden fairs. The Kikinda comes from a small village in East Serbia. This town is famed for their pumpkin festivals. We grew ours in a “gourd tunnel,” and it is important to trellis if you want straight fruit.

What are the pros? Prolific, tasty

What are the cons? Vines smell like urine

Review:

Love this calabash! Interchangeable with Philippine variety in recipes. Eating daily over the summer. Flowers pollinated by large nocturnal hawk moths. Best simple recipe: saut?ed with garlic and onions in olive oil, when browned add sliced tomatoes and a dab of grass fed butter and salt. Cook down to a gooey sauce, eating with every meal. Pricey seeds, but 109% germination. With 300 days of growing season in 9A this gourd is a hit! Tip: water twice daily and feed weekly.

Review:

Plan where you want it, Jack and the Beanstalk plant will go everywhere. Better like to eat Zucchini because you will get more than you can eat.

Review:

I adopted this specimen of the Kikinda Gourd from the Squash tower or The Petaluma Seed Bank In 2017. The gourd, that I call a #PetCelebritySquash, weighted about 20 or more pounds. It dried beautifully into a snake-like looking creation that has captured the imagination of hundreds of attendees at various Integrstive Medicine Conferences and at the Natural Product Expo West in late winter 2017, as well as the famed California traveling Circus Vargas. It has been a tremendous conversation starter and promoter for the 8th Annual National Heirloom Expo, Sept 11-12-13, 2018, where “Skippy” will be Part of the Enchanted Garden Mobile exhibit.

What are the pros? it tried so very hard.....

What are the cons? needs less sun

Review:

it sprouted, grew, and failed to thrive when temperatures flirted with 115-120 degrees in june and july. flowers melted by 9 am, and we only began to set fruit after monsoon, late in September. the plant got a new lease on life in late august as temperatures at night were less than 90 degrees. a critter gutted one fruit that reached about 24 inches long. flavor in the remaining , shorter fruit was mild. flowers were pretty, good plant to demonstrate male and female flowers... those plants from the equitorial regions really struggle around solstice in june here in phoenix... this is not my first attempt at odd supposedly heat lovers, who are happier if the light is less intense and evening acutally cool a little..
