Grow mammoth 5-7’ long gourds and amaze your family. Super tasty fruit is 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 its pumpkin festivals. We grew ours in a “gourd tunnel,” and it is important to trellis if you want straight fruit.

What are the pros? Amazing taste and so much food

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was our first year growing these (2018) and we were blown away. We grew ours in a mini-tunnel inspired by the one at Baker Creek, and would frequently harvest multiple gourds in a day. Each 18 inch to 2 1/2 foot gourd would provide an entire stir-fry meal for our family of seven, and we prepped plenty of them for winter. This is one of my personal TOP 3 garden plants, and we plan on growing them for years to come! We think that the flavor when stir-fried is somewhat comparable to those mini-corns that are common in stir-fry mixes. Once, everyone was talking about how great the meal was, and I forgot to even add seasonings!

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.
