Biting a Zuccurì® is an authentic sensory experience. The cooked pulp has a soft texture on the palate that first crumbles and then melts in the mouth. It is called chestnut pumpkin for this characteristic and its natural sweetness is misleading to the point that many think it has been artificially sweetened.

how it is grown


“The original name Zuccurì® was born from the fusion of Kuri (chestnut in Japanese) and Pumpkin.
In fact, Kuri kabocha means chestnut pumpkin.”


Zuccurì® can be appreciated in several ways: in Tempura (fried), in the microwave (just 5 minutes of cooking) or in soup. Cooked and cut into small pieces, it is a very tasty snack.

Growing tips

Our advice is to grow Zuccurì® during periods characterized by high temperatures, with a soil rich in nitrogen.
Furthermore, it is necessary to obtain a good leaf coverage.
