60 days. Lagenaria siceraria. AKA the Snake Gourd or Longissima, this pale green Italian Gourd is a long, thin Squash that could grow over 3" wide and about 18" long, but it is best picked when 8" long and 2" in diameter, while its white flesh is still tender and sweet. Easy to grow, Cucuzzi should be started indoors 4 weeks before setting out when night temperatures stay above 55°F. Support its vines with a tall trellis, netting or strings to keep the fruit on the straight and narrow. Enjoy as you would Zucchini. (OP).
