The vining plants produce delicious white zucchini-type fruit that are very tasty fried. They come from the fertile valleys near Odessa in the Ukraine, the area my great-grandfather farmed many years ago. Rare.

What are the pros? Good taste and texture

Review:

I decided to try these based upon the description and the photo. The squash weren't at all white, but instead a lovely pale green-- and the fruits from my garden were not shaped like the photo but were instead all uniformly oval. The plants are bushy and dense, but we didn't harvest very many squash from the two plants in our Zone 7b garden. The taste and texture were quite good, and they don't seem to grow too big too quickly, enabling you to leave them on the plant a few more days without worry of finding a baseball bat-sized fruit. Of the three summer squash varieties we grew this summer-- Cocozella Di Napoli, Early Golden Crookneck and Odessa-- these were the last to start producing fruit, about seven to eight weeks after planting seed.

Review:

I originally purchased this variety for nostalgic reasons. Odessa is my native town and I remember these squash very well. We love to fry them in oil, then dress with sour cream, garlic and dill. Good hot of cold. So I bought it for the sake of my memories, mostly.I planted it pretty late in the season (end of May) and it took a bit to get started. Then it got attacked by three kinds of bugs, one after another. I was about to cut my losses, when the squash decided to abandon the central stem and grew its way around buggy parts, and then it just went on and on until late November. It's extremely prolific, fruits are tender, sweet, flavorful and very uniform. Once we left it for a week and went on vacation. Our friend forgot to harvest one of the fruits, and it grew to a size of a baseball bat, no kidding. I thought it would be woody and tough, but it was quite good still. I highly recommend this variety, it's easy, healthy and delicious.

Review:

I have grown this long vining summer squash for a number of years. In a good year the vines will out grow pests for quite a while. Young sqash are tastey but must be picked young to avoid rapidly maturing seeds.
