How to Grow Cocozielli Squash - Long Gourds
Do you want to grow a vegetable taller than a full grown man? Cocozielli
is a squash found in Italy that can easily grow longer than 5 feet long!
It requires a lot of space. Ray DiVasta grows them in his backyard garden
in Greece, N.Y. Ray grows them over his shed ,and trains them on a rope tied
high on a tree.
You can grow them too! Follow the same process you do for
growing squash. It is a natural climber. Give it
plenty of room to grow and climb ,with a strong trellis, or fence. As it
grows, your neighbors and friends will be absolutely amazed. In the fall,
you can enter it in fall festivals and weighoffs. Or, sell some to your local
grocery stores, which love to pick up novel fruits and vegetables either
for sale or display.
In competitions, this squash is known as the "Long Gourd".
The World record for long squash (or gourds) is 121.5 inches, held
by Todd Kline at Barrie,Ontario, Canada GPC site on Sept 16,2006
