Phonetically pronounced: 

Sakız is one of the most commonly grown and eaten summer squash varieties across Turkey and among all cultures in the country, and especially in the Western region. I grew up eating this flavorful zucchini which was and still is my mom’s to-go variety for her squash stews. Fruits have thick flesh and thin walls, and are traditionally carved to stuff with meat-based or vegetarian fillings.

Kolsuz Sakız is versatile and can be used in stir fry recipes as well as to make yogurt-based squash salads. Other recipes include olive oil dishes that are served cold and recipes such as mücver (eng. fritter). When halved, fruits easily stay on the bottom of the pot, which is an important, culturally appropriate trait in the context of Turkey and the Mediterranean Region for a stuffing squash.

Kolsuz Sakız is a bush variety and prolific. Fruits have light green/white skin. It is possible to see variations among fruit sizes and lengths while the flesh texture will consistently stay amazing throughout your entire harvest.  You can harvest fruits in about 50-60 days from direct-seeding. 

Our current seed stock was grown by Tom Wahlberg of Decorah, IA. Tom is a farmer certified by the Iowa Organic Certification Program. He was also one of the former seed house managers of Seed Savers Exchange.

    Can you tell me, please, the growth habit AND size of the plant? Trailing? Compact? Space needed? Thank you.

      This is a bush squash with large leaves. We recommend planting one plant every 2-3 ft. Plants don’t vine but toward the end of the season, their stalks typically stretch a bit and keep producing fruits.

    Beautiful produce, delicate real zucchini flavor, but not that many of them. I got 2-3 zucchini per plant.
