Features & Highlights

  • You are buying 24+ FRESH Cucuzzi (Lagenaria siceraria) Seeds, including planting and growing instructions.
  • This vine will produce a PROFUSION of edible gourds (8" - 10") and many large (the longest we've had so far is 40"; YES, that is a YARDSTICK laying next to them in the picture!) gourds for drying and saving seeds for next year. They are fast growing - so make sure you check for edible fruits to harvest EVERY DAY - the fruits will easily grow 1 - 2 inches a day! These also make an excellent plant for children as they are so fast growing, the kids can almost see them grow!
  • The fruits of the Cucuzzi are of a light green color with a smooth skin and can reach three feet PLUS in length. Despite having the white flower of a gourd, Cucuzzi are utilized in the kitchen much like summer squash and are best harvested at a length of 8 - 10 inches when they are still immature. Enjoy them baked, grilled, raw, frozen, and pickled (SEE AUTHENTIC ITALIAN RECIPE BELOW!). Cucuzzi features a thick, tender, creamy white flesh and are not at all bitter unless harvested at large sizes. It can also be dried as a gourd.
  • Also known under a wide range of other names such as Zucchetta Cucuzzi, Serpent of Sicily, Italian Edible Gourd, Longissima, Bottle Gourd, Calabash, Suzza Melon, Zucca, Tasmania Bean, Guinea Bean, New Guinea Bean, White Flowered Gourd and Indian Squash, is a vine is an annual plant with hairy, shallow lobed leaves and white flowers (unlike squash which are always yellow flowered). The vines can run up to 25 feet in length. The female flowers produce long cylindrical gourd like fruits that are typically straight, while others may be twisted or coiled up like snakes (giving rise to the name Serpent of Sicily).
