Cucuzza

Cucuzza is a long, skinny, pale green edible gourd that can grow up to three feet long. The white, pulpy flesh has many seeds in the center, similar to a cucumber and has a slightly sweet, nutty flavor. The cucuzza can be sliced and fried or sauteed, steamed or microwaved. The cucuzza makes a great addition to soups, stews, gumbos, quiches and sauces and can even be used in baked goods such as quick breads, muffins and pies.
