Cucuzzi features a thick, tender, creamy white flesh and are not bitter at all unless harvested at large sizes. This vine will produce a PROFUSION of edible gourds (8" - 10") and many large (the longest we've had so far is 40"!) 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.
