Description Planting Information Extended Information
Also known as Cucuzza or Zucchetta Squash, this variety is technically a gourd but it is often referred to as a squash because the young fruit is edible. The squash is pale green with white flesh. Use this wonderful squash when it is young, before it develops a hard shell. Pick the fruit before it reaches 6 inches long. The flavor is sweet and nutty when small but it needs to be harvested very early. Peel the fruit before eating as the skin can be very tough. The older fruit can be dried and used as gourds. The vines are prolific and produce beautiful white flowers that bloom at night. 55 days.

Packet size: 4 grams (approximately 15 seeds)
