Rugosa Friulana Squash

60 days. Common in northeastern Italy, and nearly the only variety seen in the Venetian shops and markets. The name means "wrinkled of Friuli," but the light yellow fruits are beyond wrinkled, being fantastically warted even when very young. Rich and full flavored, as Italian varieties usually are.

What are the pros? Attractive. Texture is good.

What are the cons? I don't dislike anything.

Review:

The plants look like crookneck or straight neck yellow squash, but the squash are more beautiful with their bright yellow warty exterior. I picked a large, conjoined squash today, sliced it in length-wise slabs, salted the sides and let it 'sweat', then dusted both sides with cornstarch, let them set on a tray long enough for the cornstarch to look damp, and then fried them in a 1/4 inch peanut oil. We feasted off that one squash! The flavor is a little more pronounced than the yellow crookneck. I'm very happy to have this growing in our garden. I hope it will produce well.

Review:

I loved these, I didn't get many but the ones I did get were awesome! I like them fried but I absolutely ADORED these in soup, the hold up very well and have the most creamy consistency on the tongue with a great flavor. I will grow these again.

Review:

I grew these for my community garden - no other summer squash even approached them for productivity, and the taste was great (a hint of mushroom); just sautee in butter. Even those that were quite large (10" or more) were tender and flavorful, and not the least bit seedy. I didn't lose any to squash bugs, and powdery mildew only set in after the plants were going over for the season. They were the largest, most vigorous plants in the summer squash patch, with 100% germination.

Review:

High-yields, despite late short summer after very wet spring. Sturdy, flush upright plants-deterred critters to a certain extent by spiny thick plant stems. Warty-ness helped deter skin abrasion, so more marketable than yellow zukes, but will still mar if you toss them. Likes ground fabric or black plastic. NOT frost tolerant at all. Excellent taste, sweet, squeaky. Excellent grilled. Do not crowd plants. Customer fave!

Review:

In my garden, the plants are medium size, typical squash plants. They are not fussy and have produced an average amount. The flavor is very good - mellow and richer than crookneck yellow squash. It's texture is a bit like yellow squash but has a thicker texture a bit like pumpkin. They should be picked very young or the skin gets thick and tougher -but can still be eaten if cooked more. My family has enjoyed it this summer. I bet I grow it again because it is unique and flavorful.
