PM me your address and I'll send you some.  That is I'll send some if I haven't gotten them all packed up.

This variety grows like kudzu so I hope you have room.

I'm sorry but my garden things got packed up with my shop and no telling where they are.  We are taking a load this weekend but it will be a month or more before we do any unpacking.

Sorry about that

No problem.  i got the original seeds from my uncle Jim Bananno of Baton Rouge.  Every one on my mothers side of the family, Uncles Jim, Sidney, Carlo and James usually had them hanging in the fig trees.  They have probably been in the family for over 100 years here in the states and who knows how long in the old country.  We always pronounce them "gagooza".

I have given seeds to 3 people here at work who are growing them.
Glad to see them being passed along.

I was always amazed at how many seeds you can get out of one of those things.

Sympathy for the night shift, I work rotating 12 hr. shifts, too... What kind of trellis do you all use for the cucuzzi sqash? I haven't planted the seeds I have, hopin to get a trellis in place first. I have an old swingset that may work, just not sure what wire to use on it.

I've used trellis netting in the past.  it worked OK.   
Something sturdier would be better.
My uncles used to let them grow into the fig trees.

The swing set would work with wire or maybe welded fencing attached.

I got some cucuzzi squash seeds from westwinds and am going to use stucco netting (6x6" grid) from Lowes between 2 t-posts for anchors as a trellis for them (bout the same as concrete mesh). I prefer it because it's flat and comes in panels.

I have seeds for anybody who needs them. I originally got these from Bigoledude that was on here. (anybody knows where he's at? I think he's from Lafayette area) Anyway, he sent me some last year and I planted and now I have a bunch of seed. By the way, when you cook this squash, you do take the seeds out first, right?  I find that to be a chore. LOL

We eat them with the seeds if they are still fairly small and tender.

I am looking forward to stuffing and baking them like I do with zucchini, plus I am going to try my hand at ratatouille when they come in.
