Hi, I'm Gerry, new to the Forums. Looking for info concerning cucuzza squash, or gourds. I was given 3 cucuzzas, one young and tender, and the other 2 for seed. My question is: They are no longer on the vine. Can I still save for seed? Do I just set them on a shelf in my shed and let them dry out? How long do they need to dry out before I can use the seeds to grow new cucuzzas? Thanks for any help you can give. Gerry

RE: Need info on cucuzzas.

Hopefully the two you were given for seed are fully mature. Just let them dry. (They are a variety of bottle gourd). when they are dry and light, break them open and collect the seeds. They will be hollow and the seeds will be quite loose.
