The popular Italian edible gourd. Long, slender fruit are a brilliant, light green color; very tender and delicious with a rich flavor. The Italians eat these steamed, sauteed, or stuffed and baked. Perfect for specialty markets

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Hard to give away

Review:

This was my first time growing these or any gourd at all. The vines are vigorous and seemed to pick up steam just as all the other vines (summer squash, winter squash, cucumber) were slowing down. They seemed not to mind the increase in heat and decrease in rainfall that is usual in mid-late summer around here. The flowers are open in the evening long after squash blossoms are closed up tight and are really beautiful at dusk. The gourds have a fuzzy texture and an interesting smell that I can't liken to anything familiar. I have been harvesting the gourds when they are about 2 feet long and cooking them like a summer squash. The flavor is mild and I like them with curry powder and onion. I mention all this because I found that unless I cooked it for people they were hesitant to try them. I plan to grow them again, but may plant fewer of the them as they are so productive it can be hard to keep up with the harvest!

What are the pros? very prolific

What are the cons? Very big vine

Review:

Our family has always grown a variety of these squash. We called them cucuzzas. If they get too big you can peel and chop them and cook in a stew with tomatoes onions and garlic and a little Italian seasoning. Delicious. Another way is to bake them with ground beef stuffing. One vine covered the entire trellis over our 12' x 20' patio and we probably picked about 30 squash from it that year. Sadly we have moved and I have no place to plant them now.

What are the pros? Super easy to grow

Review:

Grew this for the first time. And will grow again. Very productive. And tasty. Very long vine. Longer than any other vine I have ever grown. Doesn't stop traveling. Easy to miss them until they are too big. We picked at 10 inches for eating raw in salads and up to 2 ft for cooking.
