So, for all you Carosello fans out there, I just recently discovered the Network for the biodiversity of Horticulture in Puglia website, found at biodiversitapuglia.it.
This website is continually updating their findings concerning Italian agriculture and, as it turns out, carosello varieties. For those of us who speak English, it does require translation, but if you are looking for Carosello varieties to learn more about – this may be a resource for you!
One of their earliest posts was about the experience individuals have with seeing carosello cucumbers while visiting southern Italy.
There is a general Carosello page, then there are a few pages about specific Carosello, such as the Mandurian Round.
One page in particular talks about a Carosello Pilusedda, which looks a lot like a Carosello Polisello – perhaps very similar to my Polisello. Then there is another page about a Spuredda Leccese variety.

I am thrilled to see so much information coming out of the source of some of the fantastic Carosello varieties.
Whenever you want to find more out about Carosello cucumber varieties in Italy, you can always go to Puglia’s biodiversity website.
