(C. moschata) 70 days. The famous Italian heirloom vining zucchini and pumpkin; long slender 15-inch fruit have a flat bulb at the bottom. They are one of the best eating summer squash: very tender, mild and sweet tasting. The flavor is superb! This squash is also great as winter squash. The Italians use it for stuffing in gnocchi and ravioli; the flesh is rich and flavorful, great for baking and pies! The vines produce good yields of this great all-purpose squash. The mature fruit grow very long. This one is in very high demand at specialty markets.

What are the cons? none

Review:

We planted these on a lark in May of 2015 just because they sounded interesting - only 8 vines in a raised bed against the fence with a trellis it could climb. We just let it go and did not do much for it. Holy cow! These things were prolific! We had so much squash and they never stopped coming. We tried eating them as summer and winter - prefer them as a winter squash. And wow did they keep. I just left them in a corner of the kitchen in a bushel basket near the door, and truth be told, here in April of 2016, I still have two huge ones left that are in perfect condition. We even developed a special recipe just for this squash - a chicken-oregano pasta with spinach, pine nuts, and parmesan. This squash is a keeper, and to be quite honest we have had very mixed luck with squash.

What are the pros? Easy, huge, delicious

What are the cons? I want more

Review:

I have a 3' X 4' raised bed where I grew these. I planted seeds in early June under milk jugs for protection. They germinated quickly and grew like crazy. I had two plants that vined up to about 20' long. I harvested 1 squash as a summer squash which was great, tasted kind of like zucchini but then I left the rest on to mature into the fall. I harvested 67 lbs all together from two plants.

What are the pros? high producing

What are the cons? not a good winter squash

Review:

This squash was very easy to grow. As many other people have said the vine bores don't mess with it. How ever the squash bug will attack it but that's a easy fix just pick them off to control them. This squash taste the best as a summer squash at about 12 to 16 inches long. You can let it go to a winter squash but you seem to lose a lot of the flavor. I let a few ripen to a winter squash stage and so far have been storage for 2 months just to see how long they store for> I will continue to grow this squash for it's wonderful taste as a summer squash

What are the pros? Squash vine borer resistant

What are the cons? None

Review:

I have problems with vine borer's. They do not bother this squash. It's very good as a summer squash, as long as you don't let it get too big, 12 inches is good. Not so good as a winter squash. I let at least one grow to maturity to save the seeds.

What are the pros? Good early fruits, large plant

What are the cons? bit insipid as winter squash

Review:

Really enjoyed seeing the plants take off and cover the compost heap where I planted to give plenty of nutrients. I figured since pumpkins have done well as volunteers there that this squash would too, and this one did. Two plants covered the heap and would have covered my SUV, too, if the carport hadn't shaded too much. The blossoms were beautiful and the young fruits a bit firm, but tasty summer squash. Some of the winter squash have been rather insipid (more like summer squash flavor) when roasted, and there's little flesh in the seedy bulb end. Overall, though, great to have a squash that copes with mildew and borers and gave me homegrown fruits. Recommend to use for serving with tomatoes, garlic, and onion similar to ratatouille.
