 Cucuzza squash, also known as Italian edible gourd, is a vining plant that produces long, curved, or straight, slender cylindrical vegetables. The skin of the mature squash becomes hard and tough and the vegetable is inedible. However, if harvested while immature, the smooth, pale green squash is edible with a mild, sweet, and subtly nutty flavor, reminiscent of the texture and taste of zucchini.

Growing Cucuzza squash is very similar to growing any other summer squash or gourd. Here are some general instructions for growing Cucuzza squash:

Plant seeds about one inch deep and spaced about two feet apart when the soil is warm and the danger of frost is over.
The planting site should receive full sun or at least six to eight hours of sun per day.
A trellis is essential because the vining plant can reach lengths longer than 10 yards.
Mulching the plants will help conserve moisture and keeps the fruits cleaner if you don’t trellis the vines.
The vines are prolific growers and need room to grow and spread.
The vine will be harmed by frost and the mature gourds should be harvested once the vine is dead.
