You can’t miss this gourd growing in your garden; with a weight of 30 to 100 pounds, these are the largest gourds in the world! They are not only big, but also very delicious. Pick them young and cook like zucchini! This was a real show stopper at the 2015 National Heirloom Expo. Everyone wanted to know how we grew this monstrosity; unbelievably, there are no trade secrets to growing this whopper. It’s extremely easy to grow; they thrive with little care. Start early and keep warm. They require soil that is 70-85 degrees F, and can take from 7 to 48 days to sprout. If you do not have night pollinators, hand pollinate the evening blooms.

Review:

Great seeds. I bought these seeds to grow on a steep slope next to my veg garden, I figured they would grow and choke out the weeds that usually multiply there. I had no trouble with germination using a seed tray and hot pad, every one sprouted. Through my own fault I was only able to get five planted...and those were planted late. In spite of that, these guys flourished and four of the plants fruited growing tremendous sized gourds. It's close enough to harvest time that I decided to get one off the slope. I gave it a shove and it rocketed down the slope like an Olympic bobsled, no damage! So these things are tough lol I now have a gourd that is nearly as tall as my 11 year old. We had a lot of fun watching these things grow.

Review:

This was one of the easy thing that I have every grown except for weeds. I did not water, feed, spray or take care of it. It grew until now that our weeds have died back, late October when I could see some of the largest ZUCCA GOURDS. .(it's leaves are still green and has white flowers) I am so pleased with this plant that I'm going to plant it again this spring, if I can get the seeds.

Review:

These are MOST EXCELLENT gourds to grow!! If you want a HUGE product to impress friends and family look no further. Resistant to squash bugs - much to the same strength of birdhouse gourds. I harvested one early and green at 13 lbs and used half the flesh to cut my jam/jelly berry needs in half. 1/2 zucca flesh boiled down and pureed 1/2 berries that the recipe called for and there was no flavor loss.... This is an excellent gourd and I HIGHLY recommend this to everyone!!!
