52 days. The famous Italian/Roman ribbed zucchini. The distinctive, long fruit are fluted and ribbed; medium green-striped skin; rich and very flavorful. The cut slices are scalloped. It is also popular to fry this squash whole, when it is small with the flower still attached. A perfect gourmet variety for the market grower.

What are the pros? Taste, strong plant

What are the cons? spiny foliage, large plant

Review:

This was my first year growing summer squash. I grew this, golden zucchini, and Lebanese bush marrow. This was my favorite by far, in terms of plant strength, yield, and taste of the squash. I didn't have the best luck with the other two varieties. Powdery mildew is bad where I live, and it ended up overtaking the other 2 varieties, even though I tried various organic remedies. This just kept plugging along without a hitch. The yield has been more than I can handle for a family of 2, with a few squash every couple of days for months. They seem to grow quicker than the others, with a squash sometimes being smaller than I'd want to pick one day, and larger than I'd want to pick by the next day. I noticed the same thing that other reviewers commented on regarding the poor storage time. This squash does not last very long once picked. The flavor is amazing. Sweet, never bitter, not watery. When beer battered, people said it tasted "like candy". For this alone, I will continue to grow it.

What are the pros? Tastes good

What are the cons? Not a keeper

Review:

I've been growing this variety for 5 years and it's really a love hate thing. It's beautiful, color, striations, ribbed form and slightly green flesh. Tastes great when used within a day or two of picking. After that, pithy, dry and sadly wilted. After growing Ford Hook and Black Beauty...I'm going to pass on this one next year. For those who can consume quickly I'd still recommend.

What are the pros? Pest resistance/great taste

What are the cons? Plant size/low yields

Review:

These plants did produce some tasty squash but the harvest is minimal for the amount of room the plant consumes in your garden space. Pests that were destroying other squash plants did not seem to care as much for this one, so it stayed healthier. Another problem I noticed was the rapid deterioration of the fruit once it was picked; you had to hurry to use it or it withered and/or rotted. It produced beautiful large yellow blossoms that were edible and had a subtle taste but, again, not enough to make it worthwhile (in my opinion) considering the cons I've mentioned.

Review:

This grew better than anything else in our first experimental garden. I fried these in flour with salt and pepper. My grandma told me to pick them fairly small but that didn't happen, they grew really fast. I ate them huge and I didn't notice it tasted any different. Something I'll know to grow every year.
