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? fast growing fruit, 2"/day

What are the cons? tough to pollinate; fruit dies

Review:

This is for the adventurous and industrious: needs an eight foot trellis. I had access to bamboo and that worked well. The seeds are thick hulled that need to be scarified, meaning rough them up a bit with sandpaper or a nail clipper so water gets inside. I started two seeds indoors in a peat pellet. Both plants sent out a single shoot that bifurcated. The first shoot grew to the top of the trellis, turned brown and died. But the bifurcation, the second shoot, was robust with lots of vines and fast growth. A single white blossom opened every day that lasted for 24 hours. I wasn't getting any fruit from them, so i tried pollinating with a Qtip, but that didn't work. Then i read that white flowers require nocturnal pollinators, so i started leaving the porch light on nearby and four blossoms formed fruits. Three of them turned brown and died, but one of them grew an impressive two inches a day. It's two feet long, about 3 cm wide. I'll definitely try these again next year, maybe 6 plants
